Please see the following documents.

The Developmental Disabilities Advisory Board and the Jefferson County Developmental Disabilities Program sponsored a Community Forum on Thursday, May 24, 2018 from 12 pm to 2:30 pm at the Quimper Unitarian Church.

The Purpose of the Community Forum was to

  • Hear from Parents and community members about disability needs & areas of concern; 
  • Identify key Partners, (formal/informal) in Jefferson County, discuss what they bring to the table, and how to continue  more effective partnerships and support/services;
  • Inform the County Developmental Disabilities Program and Advisory Board about successes, what’s working, what’s not, what we need more of, future possibilities, employment outcomes and a quality life.
