Initially implemented in the fall of 2007, Project SEARCH at Seton was the first of its kind in Texas. It is supported by a unique collaboration among business, education, rehabilitation and disability service providers. The ultimate goal for participants is competitive employment.
Project SEARCH is a living embodiment of what we mean when we talk about Humancare at Seton Healthcare Family. We value the talents, contributions, and gifts of every member of our community, and are committed to advancing healthcare through a focus on the dignity of each individual.
Thank you for your generosity and the impact it is making in your hometown!
This year your Amplify Austin donations will impact Project SEARCH.
Seton Healthcare Family offers intellectually disabled individuals a chance to find a productive place in our community. Through individualized internships focused on filling a business need, Project SEARCH provides each participant the opportunity to develop vocational skills and build professional experience with the ultimate goal of competitive employment.
Our neighbors with intellectual disabilities need a chance to find a place where they can have a meaningful impact. Your generous donations help fund this year-long internship program that gives each participant vocational skills they can use in a business setting.
Our graduates have found full-time jobs with Seton and other organizations around Central Texas. Donate today, and help us prepare the next group of young adults!
"We learned new work skills and how to be more independent both at our jobs and in the community. (Project SEARCH) prepared me to earn a living and help my family," Roberto, 2014 Project SEARCH graduate.
