P1040002The Arc Central Chesapeake Region, an organization that provides customizable, innovative supports and services to people with developmental disabilities and their families held its annual Awards Banquet in honor of staff and community participants and their involvement in improving the lives of those with developmental and intellectual disabilities.

The prestigious Visionary Leadership Award was presented to Nancy Luttrell, Vice President, Human Resources, at Anne Arundel Medical Center for her commitment to Project SEARCH. Rebecca White, Manager of Employment and Business Relations at The Arc said, “Because of Nancy’s leadership, AAMC and our community is undergoing a systems change- an expectation of competence and accomplishment for young adults with a disability. Because of this opportunity our students’ dreams are more optimistic and bolder than they thought possible.”

Project SEARCH allows for participants to experience a year-long internship. The Project SEARCH High School Transition Program is a unique, business led, one year school-to-work program that takes place entirely at the workplace. Total workplace immersion facilitates a seamless combination of classroom instruction, career exploration, and hands-on training through worksite rotations.  The Arc’s first Project SEARCH program launched at Anne Arundel Medical Center this year in partnership with Anne Arundel County Public Schools (AACPS), Division of Rehabilitative Services (DORS), Hannah More School and Service Coordination and runs within eleven departments of the hospital.

The Arc Central Chesapeake Region’s (CCR) Mission is to promote respect, create opportunities and advocate for equal rights for all people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
