HOUSTON (FOX 26) - For parents if their child is born with disabilities, many are concerned about who will take care of their child when they’re gone.
One local university is hoping to calm parents’ fears with an innovative way for those with disabilities to provide for themselves.
It would get them in the workforce. That program is a partnership with University of Houston-Downtown's College of Public Service, and the Housing, Entrepreneurship and Readiness training program.
It's a 150-hour internship program running for three semesters. The program specifically targets those with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
