Local nonprofit able to continue mission


EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT)- Evansville nonprofit Arc Industries, a packaging, assembly, and distribution facility that offers vocational training and employment for people with disabilities, is celebrating after learning they’ll be able to continue their mission.

Indiana budget cuts meant Arc Industries lost $170,000, causing worries they may have to close. However, customers stepped forward, meaning Arc Industries has more work and will be able to stay open. The Arc serves about 100 people at full capacity and is looking for other agencies to work with.
