The Arc strives to empower people and inspire change in many ways – including expanding employment opportunities for people with disabilities.We not only advocate for change – we are working to be part of that change by developing a hospitality training institute and teaching hotel in Muncie, Indiana.  The 150 room training institute and teaching hotel will be located by the Horizon Convention Center in Muncie, Indiana.Ground breaking is planned for 2014 and the facility is slated to open in the summer of 2015.


Our Goals:

  • Provide post secondary education opportunities that will train people with disabilities for jobs in the hospitality industry

  • Employ individuals with disabilities throughout the hotel in various capacities including management

  • Include businesses owned by people with disabilities in the teaching hotel lobby

  • Serve as a resource center for people in the human resources field by offering training on employing people with disabilities
