A total of 390 employees of the former Northwest Supports and Services Center were invited to reapply for jobs. For director April Lee, it was not just about keeping her job. As the administrator, her house on the 100-acre grounds was on the line, too.</p><p></p> Tue, 28 May 2013 18:32:02 +0000 Kate Archer Kent 28267 at http://redriverradio.org Arc of Acadiana Northwest extends its mission to Bossier City facility Resale clothing stores and nursery open in Bossier City http://redriverradio.org/post/resale-clothing-stores-and-nursery-open-bossier-city <p>The Arc of Acadiana Northwest, a residential facility for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, has opened seven resale clothing stores and a nursery&nbsp;and pottery&nbsp;business at its 100-acre campus in Bossier City.
