United Way of Clinton County, Iowa (UWCCI) funding has helped support the Skyline Center’s Supportive Employment Program for more than 30 years. The 2021 funding award of $29,665 will be used to serve individuals that are underfunded by Medicaid coverage for their needs to help them apply, train and retain jobs, giving them a sense of pride, and be a part of society that works to pay their bills.
The Skyline Center works to place intellectually disabled individuals in a variety of Clinton area workplaces, performing packaging, labeling and assembly work. Skyline offers long term job coaching and assistance with developing skills, work habits and learn interpersonal skills. Since 1970, Skyline has been an essential part of the community. Theresa Dolph, Skyline Center Supervisor, says, “When Medicaid benefits are reduced, United Way funding fills the gap, providing employment support and community living to intellectually disabled residents.”
