County of Summit Developmental Disabilities Board


Summit DD Board Stories

At Summit DD, we believe in supporting and enabling individuals with developmental disabilities to work, live and learn as equal citizens in their communities. Summit County taxpayers make that mission possible.  Each of the 4,000+ individuals served by Summit DD is supported by a team. That team is directed by the individual served and coordinated by Summit DD Service and Support Administrators.  When you support Summit DD, not only do you support the individual served, but you also support families, employers, friends, neighbors, and more than 200 providers of DD services in Summit County.  We invite you to read the stories of the individuals that you help support. We hope they inspire you as much as they inspire us.
