The Disabilities and Special Needs Boards of Pickens and Anderson Counties, Southern Wesleyan University and the South Carolina Department of Disabilities and Special Needs are coming together to create "The Jericho Project" a housing community to serve individuals with special needs/disabilities and SWU students committed to mentoring and assisting these individuals.
This represents a new type of collaboration which will yield a living/learning environment that will,
A. Prepare its special needs and disabilities residents to live more independent lives
B. Provide to the involved students a life learning experience to guide them throughout the rest of their lives.
A "win-win" for both.
