Project SEARCH was established in 1996 by Erin Riehle, Director of the Emergency Department at Cincinnati Children's Hospital. Since then, Project SEARCH has grown from a single program site at Cincinnati Children's Hospital to more than 600 locations across 49 states and 11 countries.  Project SEARCH is a special education transition program that trains and equips individuals with disabilities to perform complex jobs, and supports each student in finding meaningful work within the community.

Berrien County's Project SEARCH program is a collaboration among the following organizations:

Berrien RESA
Michigan Rehabilitation Services
