Celebrating 50 years serving Noble County, Indiana.

Vantage Grant

A Vantage Grant, one of six awarded by the AWS Foundation totaling $450,000, gives us the opportunity to listen to individuals and their families as they tell us about their dreams and desires for community living options, as well as explore potential options and solutions that will make those dreams come true!

We are grateful for the opportunity to use a Vantage Grant to transform our organization by looking beyond daily demands.

The mission of The Arc Noble County Foundations is to support individuals with disabilities in Northeast Indiana to maximize their abilities to succeed at work, at home and in their community.

The Arc Noble County Foundations began providing services to six adults with developmental disabilities at Rome City School in November 1970.  In December 1991, the Noble Training Center had a new name, Foundations, and a new location, its current one in a former manufacturing facility at 506 South Orange Street in Albion.


Since 1991, Foundations has expanded services to include not only pre-vocational training in which individuals work on paid jobs but also a variety of other opportunities.

In 2014, additional services were added for individuals who do not desire the workshop experience to include community opportunities and respite. In 2019, we began a partnership with the Kendallville Community Learning Center (CLC) as a designated programmer. We are also committed to support individuals who would request our services from the other counties in the area to include Dekalb, Lagrange, Steuben and Whitley counties.

We are hopeful our services can support you on your journey!
