~~“After five years of success with its three youth locations, the Office of Rehabilitation Services (ORS), a division of the Department of Human Services (DHS), expanded its partnership with others to open a new site for adults with disabilities ages 21 to 30.

Project Search is a training program for people living with developmental disabilities that helps prepare them for competitive employment.

As part of the expansion, eight interns started in the school-to-work program at Rhode Island Hospital on Monday, October 15. This addition is a collaboration between DHS, Rhode Island Hospital, the Department of Behavioral Healthcare, Developmental Disabilities and Hospitals (BHDDH), the Department of Labor and Training (DLT) and Goodwill Industries.”
