Freeholder Board Announces Sponsorship of Project Search at Overlook


The Union County Board of Freeholders today announced it is co-sponsoring the Project Search-Overlook Medical Center program that assists youth with disabilities to obtain a unique, life-changing school-to-work internship that provides them with employment training and with independent living skills.

“Overlook is only one of four locations statewide that hosts Project Search, and we are proud to  be co-sponsoring this program for our residents,” Freeholder Chairman Bruce Bergen said. “Project Search provides teens with the opportunity to become self-sufficient and transition into the work force, which is a very worthwhile goal.”

The announcement is one of Bergen’s Freeholder initiatives for 2017. Vice Chairman Sergio Granados, who spoke at last year’s kick-off for Project Search, concurred with Bergen.
