Winter Storm

Winter Storm Watch: Tips and Resources

A big winter storm is about to hit Summit County over the next few days. We want to give you the tips and resources you need to stay safe, as well as keep you informed on any closings at provider agencies. Below, is a general Emergency Preparedness article and a winter safety guide from the Ohio Committee for Severe Weather Awareness. We’ve also added a list of Warming Centers throughout Northeast Ohio in case you need a safe haven from the elements.

As for provider agency closings, we will be closely monitoring social media over the next 24-48 hours to quickly re-share that information on the Summit DD Facebook Page. Stay up to date here!

Most importantly, stay warm and stay safe!

Lisa Kamlowsky Superintendent.

Message from the Superintendent

Dear Summit DD Partners & Supporters, 

Another year has come and gone. As I reflect on my first year serving as Superintendent of Summit County Developmental Disabilities Board, I can’t help but think of the many people and partners whose contributions assisted us in achieving our Mission.

I believe that 2023 will present more opportunities for innovation and successful outcomes for people with developmental disabilities living in Summit County.  Read More ›

More Than 600 Providers Benefit from Summit DD Grant

Summit County disability service providers deliver the essential services that people with developmental disabilities rely on to meet their daily needs.

It isn’t an easy career, but it’s more than a job to these professionals. It’s a purpose. Summit DD believes it is important to show appreciation to these hard-working professionals, so we brought back the Summit DD Appreciation Grant. Read More ›
