The Arc of the Quad Cities Area announces the Quad Cities Chamber will conduct a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony on Friday, September 21, 2012 at 1 pm at The Arc’s Opportunity Center located at 5101 52nd Avenue in Moline. The Ribbon Cutting celebrates a $275,000 property reinvestment in the Opportunity Center facility. Senator Mike Jacobs of the 36 th Senate District in Illinois was instrumental in facilitating the funds on behalf of The Arc through an energy efficiency grant offered by the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity. The $275,000 investment converted the 40 year old HVAC system at the Opportunity Center into a geo-thermal system. The Opportunity Center houses day programs, community supports, and community employment services for 144 individuals
with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

The Ribbon Cutting is open to the public. Ambassadors from the Quad Cities Chamber, Senator Mike Jacobs, Board members of The Arc of the Quad Cities Area, The Arc’s executive management team, staff, and individuals served through The Arc will be present.

The Arc of the Quad Cities Area serves more than 300 individuals with intellectual and other disabilities. Programs foster the highest degree of independence possible, offering residential services, developmental and vocational skills training, supported employment, and respite care. From its humble beginnings in the living room of a privately-hired teacher in 1952, The Arc has evolved to a $13.5 million non-profit which employs a staff of more than 250.
