Prevocational services include teaching a participant individual concepts necessary to perform effectively in a job in the community. Participants in Prevocational Services are paid sub-minimum wage under LARC’s sub-minimum wage certificate. These services occur in facility-based settings or at community sites outside the facility for small groups of participants (enclaves).
The transportation staff provides friendly and timely services to consumers needing transportation to and from LARC. We travel to Echols, Lowndes, Brooks, Lanier, Cook, and Tift counties.
Transportation services are available on a case-by-case basis. We also provide transportation for many other consumers, including those part of the Supported Employment programs.
How to Apply
To obtain services from LARC, the Regional Office that serves the Valdosta and Lowndes County area is the first point of contact. The Region 4 Division of the Georgia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities Office evaluates, coordinates, monitors, and contracts all publicly-supported community programs and services. Most of these programs and services are provided using Medicaid waiver funding, though State-funded services are sometimes available. For more information regarding Medicaid waiver services, contact the Region 4 Intake and Evaluation Office by calling (877) 683-8557 or (229) 225-5099.
