(Lafayette, La.) —  On Thursday, April 18, Arc of Acadiana Northwest held a ribbon cutting for the grand opening of its Northwest location (formerly Northwest Supports and Services Center) in Bossier City. Arc representatives welcomed guests, giving a brief history of Arc of Acadiana and the Northwest facility, and concluded with guided tours of the facility and grounds.

Arc of Acadiana Northwest Director April Lee says, “We’re extremely lucky to have found such a great partner in Arc of Acadiana – who brought a unique combination of capacity, experience and expertise to the Northwest facility. Arc not only kept us in place, but is also working to expand our capacity and range of services.”

In 2012, Arc of Acadiana, a nonprofit organization committed to the promotion and protection of the rights of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, was awarded the contract from the state of Louisiana to privatize the 100-acre Northwest Supports and Services Center located in Bossier City. Arc of Acadiana Northwest, as it is known locally, now provides care for approximately 130 residents on site. Arc brings its wide range of services, expertise and successful enterprises to serve the Shreveport/Bossier community.
