From landscaping to retail, The Arc Eastern Connecticut’s micro-enterprises match employees with jobs in their fields of choice, where they receive training and support and grow into sought-after employees. 

Today, all micro-enterprises are on track for profitability and reduce dependency on grants and donations. The Arc ECT pays minimum wage, and people with IDD move into community jobs paying minimum wage or higher. Trainee employees gain valuable experience in a variety of fields including culinary arts, retail/customer service, hospitality/cleaning, aquaculture, landscaping/lawn care, and recycling.

The Arc Eastern Connecticut, established by two groups of families in 1952, provides advocacy and supports to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities across the entire region. Our services touch every aspect of a person's life: housing, employment/job development, vocational/micro-enterprise ventures, education, day programs, in-home supports, Senior services, health/fitness activities, and community involvement.
