Ohio Valley Goodwill was excited to be part of the 2012 Butler County Provider Fair event held at Miami University, Hamilton Campus on Thursday, November 1st. The annual event is designed to provide information about service provider agencies and program options for individuals with disabilities in Butler County. Ohio Valley Goodwill has been a participant in the annual event since its origins many years ago. Goodwill representatives Raynae Hampton and Michael Goforth had the opportunity to speak with more than 100 participants about the many programs that the organization is able to provide including skills training, support for activities of daily living, recreation options, as well as job placement assistance among others. “We always enjoy meeting with and talking with the young adults that tend to be part of this annual event,” said Ranaye Hampton, Goodwill Leisure-Recreation Coordinator. “It’s always a wonderful chance to tell people about our Fairfield Vocational Services Center and the many work options we have there,” added Michael Goforth, Fairfield Program Supervisor. The morning-long event was attended by individuals participating in Project Life and local school districts that are finding out about choices following graduation from high school as well as teachers and other professionals. Ohio Valley Goodwill has worked in partnership with the Butler County Board of Developmental Disabilities for the past 10 years on providing programs and services for individuals with developmental disabilities who reside in Butler County. Currently, the agency serves more than 200 individuals through its many program options including its Recreation-Leisure and new Activities of Daily Living service. In 2011, Ohio Valley Goodwill was selected as the “Provider Agency of the Year” by the Butler County Board of DD for the outstanding quality of its programs and services.
