Mission Statement
The mission of the Monroe County Board of Developmental Disabilities is to ensure that programs, services and supports which promote choices and community participation are available for eligible individuals and their families.  These choices will provide an opportunity to plan their futures in which they live, work, learn and develop social relationships.

Who Benefits
The Monroe County Board of DD offers a variety of services for persons with developmental disabilities who live in Monroe County.  These services are available without charge and the availability of services is nondiscriminatory in every respect.

Ultimately, all taxpayers benefit as adults with disabilities become productive employees, earning a paycheck and contributing to the tax system rather than being wholly dependent on society.

Who Administers the Program
Seven community leaders, including parents of enrollees are appointed by the County Commissioners and Probate Judge to the Board, which plans for all programs and services and sees that qualified staff is hired to provide services.
