Congratulations UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland for winning a “Program of Excellence” award for Project SEARCH! Since its start at Children’s Hospital Oakland in 2008, Project SEARCH has dramatically raised the bar for employment of individuals with developmental disabilities. With at least an 80% job placement rate for each graduating class, its graduates are earning, on average, 80% above the Federal minimum wage and 65% of them receive health benefits through their employers. EBI is honored to be part of an exciting, productive partnership with UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland.
