About

Home

We support people with developmental disabilities to discover, pursue and achieve what is important to them.

People with developmental disabilities and their families are the center of our work.  We partner with people to encourage them to maximize their potential, assume a level of responsibility according to their abilities, and secure their future. We use resources creatively and responsibly to build a community that cares about and contributes to the quality of life of its fellow citizens who have developmental disabilities.

  • We believe persons with developmental disabilities and their families decide how, when and to what extent they need services and support from the Board.
  • We believe our staff can work in partnership with individuals and their families, assisting them in achieving a quality of life they have defined for themselves.
  • We believe children and adults with developmental disabilities can make contributions to the world around them.
  • We believe adults with developmental disabilities can be productively employed and spend their time in ways that are personally beneficial.
  • We believe people with developmental disabilities should be afforded opportunities to choose where and with whom they live, consistent with the financial resources available to them.
  • We believe that it is important for people with developmental disabilities to be good neighbors.
  • We believe people with developmental disabilities can live, learn, work and recreate in the same ways and in the same places as their peers, and that the role of the LCBDD and its contracted providers is to promote and support this effort.
