Developmental Disabilities

Program Needs Assessment Survey Results


Part of the mission of the Developmental Disabilities (DD) Program and of the DD Advisory Board for Jefferson County is to plan and advocate for services for our citizens with developmental disabilities. In order for Jefferson County to be a community that is supportive to persons with developmental disabilities, we need to have a clear understanding of their individual needs and the barriers to meeting those needs. We also need to know what resources currently exist, any gaps in services, and the forces that will shape the availability of resources in the future.

Mission


The mission of the DD Advisory Board and staff is to assure that citizens with developmental disabilities in Jefferson County have the choice, opportunity and support to achieve full, active, and productive participation in community life.
