Guests shared stories, enjoyed tours of the renovated building, and presentations by President and Executive Director Dr. Steven Friedman, and Director of Social Work Joel Zurieck.
Mr. Zurieck announced Cleveland Sight Center's 2012 Champion Award from the Center For Evidence Based Practices at Case Western Reserve University for our Supported Employment program.
