Non-profit Spotlight: Siffrin
Making Life Accessible
Siffrin Inc. is a nonprofit organization established in Canton in 1976 by family members and advocates for people with disabilities. Through a donation by Elsie Siffrin, the agency’s first community-based housing option was made available. Almost 50 years later, Siffrin now offers a variety of services to hundreds of people in eight Ohio counties. Siffrin’s service areas include supervised living and respite, community support and integration, shared living, financial management, nonmedical transportation and employment support. These services help make life more accessible to people with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities.
