Integrated Resources Institute is honored to have been selected as the organization by Project SEARCH and the Regional Center of Orange County to be the single point of entry for adults with disabilities to obtain competitive employment.  Project SEARCH is an international trademarked and copyrighted program model based out of Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center.  IRI and Project SEARCH will be collaborating with Medtronics to administer an internship program for Orange County Adult Transition students with the objective of employment.  IRI will also collaborate with Medtronics Corporate Human Resources to source and refer pre-screened qualified applicants with disabilities for direct hire.  Project SEARCH is a fine collaborative partnership with IRI to employ people with disabilities in the medical and hospital health care industry as well as other industries.

Many of the business principles at the core of Project SEARCH can trace their approaches to IRI’s volunteer CEO Steve Zivolich.  Paula Johnson, Project SEARCH Program Specialist, cites IRI’s national and state employment initiatives with Pizza Hut Jobs Plus® and Universal Access at Universal Studios Hollywood as being in accord with the Project SEARCH model.

 

IRI will collaborate with the Regional Center of Orange County and the CA State Department of Rehabilitation with goals to establish Project SEARCH with Children’s Hospital Orange County (CHOC) and Kaiser Permanente.  IRI will continue to move forward with its business practices of collaborating with Human Resource Personnel to source pre-screened applicants with disabilities who are motivated and reliable as excellent employees.
