The SOTX Project UNIFY - Meet in the Middle (MiM) program is the proud recipient of a grant from the CVS Caremark Charitable Trust. The $20,000 award will support programming in 2013. The CVS Caremark Charitable Trust is dedicated to strengthening the capacity of nonprofit organizations across the country that are committed to supporting children with disabilities and promoting inclusion.
Meet in the Middle staff will use the award to improve its communication and training network throughout the state, utilitizing webinar and videoconferencing technology to connect participating MiM schools with one another and provide specific training opportunities identified by school staff or requested by students/facilitators. MiM staff will also use the funds to conduct a face-to-face leadership conference in Austin for program participants and facilitators, which will include training in effective use of this technology.
