Since then, Every Child Succeeds has served over 25,000 families and completed nearly 600,000 home visits.

Kids can succeed when given the right support.

Culture

Nurse Erin Riehle decides that a hospital that serves young people with developmental disabilities should also hire them — and thus founds Project SEARCH to provide this group training and employment opportunities. Today there are 500 Project SEARCH programs across the U.S., Canada, the U.K. and Australia, and thousands of graduates are employed. When the differently abled succeed, all kids can see a path for themselves.
