Indianapolis-based not-for-profit Noble of Indiana announced on Tuesday that it has expanded into eastern Indiana to provide employment services for people with disabilities in Fayette, Franklin, Henry, Randolph, Union and Wayne counties.

Four Noble employees leading the effort will be based in Richmond.

Founded in 1953, Noble serves more than 2,000 children and adults with disabilities in central Indiana.With a $10.8 million annual budget that’s been flat the past few years, the organization is searching for ways to grow revenue, Noble CEO Clint Bolser said.

“In hindsight, we’ve got to look at opportunities to expand,” he said. “That’s why we thought this was a good opportunity.”

Noble is funded in part by Vocational Rehabilitation Services, a program of  the state’s Family & Social Services Administration, based on its success in placing clients in jobs.

Noble will be competing with two other providers in eastern Indiana, Bolser said.

In February, Noble launched a program to expand its services to include in-home support.

Noble said the in-home service was prompted by more disabled adults living under a Medicaid-funded arrangement than in group homes.
