About CUYAHOGA COUNTY BOARD OF DD
Each year, the Cuyahoga County Board of Developmental Disabilities provides services and supports to more than 10,000 boys and girls and men and women in Cuyahoga County. The community knows us best for our early childhood centers, schools, adult activities centers and group homes, but we’re much more than that.
Our full range of services includes everything from in-home early intervention programs for very young children and their families to leisure programs for seniors. Much of what we do goes beyond the walls of our own centers and homes and takes place in the community, where we encourage individuals with developmental disabilities to live, learn, work and play.
