"The Sunnyside Home is the newest home within Summit County and it runs like one of the group homes we have had for many years. This is not just by chance, but because of the hard work, dedication, and love that is shared by each of the current staff members who work there! Some days have brought forth unexpected challenges, and some days appear to be smooth as a summer breeze, but you or I would not know the difference because this team always presents a smile, and a positive attitude no matter the circumstances. Charlyn Dalton, Jeremy Lyons, and Jennie Smith, please know that you are appreciated in every way for continuing to ensure the lives of those served are treated with great care and support. I hope that all the greatness you share with those around you comes back to you full circle...continue being great and most of all... Thank You for being you."

Chanelle Copeland, Program Coordinator, Summit County

"The Sunnyside Team is an example of bravery and having a Heart of Gold. The home went through a crisis when the staff and ladies were exposed to high CO levels. The home had to be evacuated and until a new boiler system was placed and certified by the landlord, they were unable to return to the home. Staff handled themselves well, following their training and brought the ladies to safety even though the staff was dealing with their own symptoms. The entire team pulled together over the next few weeks to ensure everyone was safe and the ladies had what they needed."  ~Kim Larson-Phillips, COO, Siffrin

We are pleased to announce that Siffrin has been issued a three-year accreditation from CARF International. The survey which took place in January applies to our services in Employment Support, Job Development, and Community Housing. This marks the 10th consecutive 3-year accreditation from CARF which is the highest award. We continue our dedication and commitment to improving the lives of those we serve since our first survey in 1993. This accreditation will extend until March 31, 2023.

Value of CARF Accreditation

CARF accreditation signals a service provider's commitment to continually improving services, encouraging feedback, and serving the community.  Providers that meet our standards have demonstrated their commitment to being among the best available.

During these very difficult times, Siffrin is doing all it can to assure the health, safety, and well-being of both the individuals we serve and our staff. We are succeeding in our endeavors, but this would not be possible without the help and support of others.

I want to thank the Stark Community Foundation for its generous grant award of $35,000, which has allowed us to maintain the leases on our facilities and secure them for the time when this crisis has passed. Together we are stronger, and I thank the Stark Community Foundation for partnering with us to address the needs of persons with disabilities in our community.

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.

Thank you to everyone who donated toys this year. Your generosity is appreciated at this time of uncertainty. You helped Siffrin deliver 231 toys to a local elementary school. This exceeds our goal, and we couldn't be happier to play a part in brightening Christmas for those children in need.

Merry Christmas to All!

Santa’s sleigh was loaded and sent on its merry way to deliver meals to 12 families. Due to the overwhelming response of donations totaling more than $1400 and non-perishable food items, Siffrin was able to provide them with everything to prepare Christmas breakfast and dinner. Thank you to everyone who gave to Staff Supporting Staff this Thanksgiving and Christmas. Special thanks to HR for coordinating all of this.
