Our dedicated support coordinators will work with you to find the right local resources to meet your needs.
Project Sunrise: An Early Intervention Program of Baldwin County
Children learn at their own pace, but some need extra help to reach developmental milestones. Project Sunrise helps those children thrive by working with families and service providers in Baldwin County to coordinate Early Intervention services for eligible infants and toddlers. After an evaluation to determine your child’s unique strengths and needs, your Service Coordinator will assist your family in locating available services and resources in the community. As part of Project Sunrise, Early Intervention services can be received in the comfort of your child’s natural environment, including your home or childcare center. This program is available to children from newborn up to age 3.
Supported Employment Milestones Program of Baldwin County
The Supported Employment Milestones program provides initial and long-term support to help individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities be successful in the workforce. Initial services such as career counseling and specialized job placement encourage personal choice as individuals make their own decisions about their job experience. Once employment is achieved, participants receive on-site training and support from a job coach as well as co-workers and supervisors. Follow-up services provide long-term support to ensure continued success on the job.
The Cindy Haber Center works with individuals and service providers across our area to coordinate quality home and community-based services for adults and children with intellectual and developmental disabilities. These person-centered services enrich the lives of individuals and their families by fostering independence, offering meaningful and community-supported activities, and providing new skills and experiences.
These programs are available in all 12 counties the Cindy Haber Center serves, including Baldwin, Clarke, Mobile, Monroe, Escambia, Conecuh, Geneva, Lowndes, Washington, Wilcox, Dallas and Perry.
