Project SEARCH® is a best-in-class job training program for young adults with special needs. Obtaining gainful employment often leads individuals with developmental disabilities to gain the means and confidence to live independent, dignified lives.
Jill has worked full time at Cincinnati Children’s for more than 15 years. She takes contaminated and jumbled trays of surgical instruments, then sorts, cleans, sterilizes, packages and stores every piece of equipment. She’s a star employee who happens to have Down Syndrome.
Your generous gift to Project SEARCH directly helps the families of children with disabilities. For example, Transitional Care specialists provide individual counseling for families, helping them plan and prepare a bright future for their child with a disability. This service is subsidized by Cincinnati Children’s at no cost to the families, but needs more support due to increased demand.
Thank you for your support!
