The Arc of Iroquois County is a human service organization committed to promoting opportunities for people with disabilities.

The Greenhouse

Our goal is to provide hands on experiences and work opportunities for the people we support, utilizing the various tasks associated with running a greenhouse. We also feel this is an excellent resource for the people we support to integrate with members of the community. We partner with amateur and master gardeners from the county, invite local elementary classrooms for field trips, and have community contact during retail hours of the selling season.

We currently serve over 90 people through our pre-employment program at Welles Career Center and they all benefit greatly from the opportunities this presents them.  excellent leisure outlet for people residing in our local nursing homes, independent and assisted living facilities.
