Review for Stone Belt Arc, Inc., Bloomington, IN, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

Stone Belt is a great place for people who have intellectual disabilities. It offers Day Program resources, a workshop for clients to work for a local pharmaceutical company, job coaches, residential facilities and individual home assistance. Staffing ranges from dealing with the intellectual disabilities and other aspects, such as mental health, counseling, physical disabilities, special diets, etc. Those who work for Stone Belt have huge hearts and love what they do. Each day is different and though some days can be a struggle, it makes it all worth it when a client hugs you and smiles, and says "you're a very wonderful person."

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

everyday life. Monday through Friday my time is devoted to Stone Belt, and more if they need me. My clients are like extended family to me. Every smile I receive makes it worth the tougher times.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I'm not sure. I haven't worked for the company too long, but if I could make overall changes, I would want more recognition for places like this, and hope that the government would quit cutting the funding for places such as this.

Role:  Professional with expertise in this field & I work at a group home for 5 of Stone Belts lower functioning clients.
