The Arc was awarded the East Coast ship provisioning sites when the Navy decided to bundle the contract (The Arc had been providing ship provisioning services on the West Coast since 2002). As part of the contract, The Arc hired approximately 100 employees with disabilities to fulfill the contract at Naval Station Norfolk.
The Arc’s partnership with Alcoa Howmet was expanded in 2010 with the support of a grant from the Virginia Department of Rehabilitative Services (DRS). The grant helped add six new positions at the plant for individuals with disabilities and provides the salary for a full-time supervisor from The Arc. Alcoa has expressed their desire to continue to expand their partnership with The Arc and possibly replicate it around the country.
The Arc launched a new document imaging line of business to generate additional revenue and provide more employment opportunities for individuals with disabilities.
