Services that create opportunities.

The Access Midland and Gladwin County Connection programs assist the people served through an individualized person-centered process to obtain access to the services, supports and resources of their choice to achieve their desired outcomes.  This may be accomplished by direct service provision, resources and contacts in the community, or any combination of these services. The Arnold Center provides individuals with information and support to help them make informed decisions.  These support services are arranged and changed as necessary to meet the desires of the individual.  

"I like the jobs on the floor and I have learned skills that helped me get my job in the community."

Community Inclusion

Community Integration Services provides opportunities for the community participation of the persons served. The Arnold Center defines the scope of these services and supports based on the identified needs and desires of the persons served.


Vocational Evaluation is an educational process in which the person served obtains greater self and work knowledge through participation in work activities designed to evaluate vocational skills, interests, and abilities. 


The Transition Vocational Experience Program is designed to give students, between the ages of 16-26, the opportunity to learn and develop work skills and behaviors.

Home Chores
