Internships at Aultman Hospital Help People with Disabilities
As part of Ohio Governor Mike DeWine’s Cabinet Day in the Mahoning Valley on December 18, 2019, Aultman Hospital in Canton provided a presentation about its Project SEARCH program for young adults with disabilities. In collaboration with Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities (OOD) and Siffrin, the program helps young adults secure permanent employment at the hospital and within the community.
Siffrin would like to thank the Stark Community Foundation for the award of a charitable grant of $35,000 for use at Siffrin Academy, a Kent State University Stark Campus-based program for transition services for persons with disabilities.
The contributors who made this grant possible:
The Louise F. Ruhnke Fund
The Peter and Judith Schurman Charitable Fund
The William J. Lemmon Charitable Fund
The Edward J. and Helen L. Harhager Donor Advised Fund
The Wright Family Charitable Funds at Stark Community Foundation
Siffrin is grateful for your generosity to help those we serve.
Congratulations Catrina Benson, CIS Coordinator in Mahoning County.

Siffrin Academy saw its first location open in 2017. Based at Siffrin’s Mahoning Regional office in Austintown, Ohio, the program offers postsecondary education and pre-vocational training. This program is geared to those transitioning into life after high school and those on a path to employment.
Siffrin Academy in Stark County will be underway soon at Kent State University Stark Campus. The university setting will allow those enrolled in the Academy to interact with students on campus and allows those KSU students to work with those in the Academy as part of a mentoring program. The relationship between KSU Stark and Siffrin will give participants a unique opportunity to make their own choices with their education in an integrated learning environment.
