Harrison CBDD Receives Three-Year Accreditation Award
CADIZ – A three-year accreditation award, the highest possible term, has been given to the Harrison County Board of Developmental Disabilities for the work it does to support people with disabilities.
A team from the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities completed a comprehensive review this fall that included interviews with people served and families whose supports are provided, coordinated or funded by the County Board.
Harrison DD Board Superintendent Stephen Williams credited the Board’s emphasis on relationships as the key to its success.
“Relationships are what matter in life and we focus on building them with the people we support and our partners who provide their services,” Williams said. “We get to know people and put our efforts into helping each person live a great life.”
All areas of the County Board were reviewed, including personnel, service and support, health and safety, incident reporting and how effective the Board is.
The Harrison County Board of DD serves over 100 people, coordinating and/or funding supports like early intervention (birth to three), preschool (ages three to five), school-age assistance, transition from school to work (ages 14 to 22), job-related skill development, employment, residential, respite and transportation.
