Resources from the Field

One of the best ways to develop your Project UNIFY Program is to learn from other programs across the country and see what they are creating to sustain their work with Project UNIFY. More resources are coming soon; however, you can check out the Project UNIFY Toolkit from South Carolina right now or see how Special Olympics Oregon conducted case study research to evaluate the effectiveness of Project UNIFY in the state.
