Vocational Services

LARC’S Vocational Services is committed to enhancing the lives of the adults we serve by assisting them in becoming productive citizens as they pursue job opportunities. Whether working on a community crew or as independent employees of area businesses, LARC introduces the world of work to the individuals we serve.

For non-wage earners, day-habilitation offers activities to enhance choice, independence and social opportunities. It provides access to meaningful community activities and services. The consumers learn enriching activities through community outings, community connections, and life skills activities. We offer transportation to those who live at home or in their own apartment.

To receive these services, the individual must be certified through the Acadiana Area Human Services District (formerly OCDD). They can be contacted at 337-262-5610.
