“We are tremendously grateful for First Niagara’s generous support of this life-changing program,” said Donna Phillips, President of Bryn Mawr Rehab Hospital. “Project SEARCH offers an opportunity to help adults with disabilities understand that they have a special and valued place in the workforce. It also offers area businesses the opportunity to diversify their workforce and identify qualified candidates for high-turnover positions. Bryn Mawr Rehab is thrilled for the opportunity to grow its impact by partnering with the First Niagara Foundation.”
“First Niagara is honored to support the Project SEARCH program at Bryn Mawr Rehab Hospital,” said Walter Unangst, First Vice President, Healthcare Lending, First Niagara. “When you hear the success stories of individuals who have participated in this program in the past, it’s a amazing feeling.”
Project SEARCH interns rotate through three 12-week internships. The current class of interns began on August 12, 2013 and the next rotation for incoming students will begin in January 2014.
