Beth Wallace Cox was a payee for multiple people who are eligible for services with Summit County Developmental Disabilities Board (Summit DD).  Through regular monitoring of people’s services, we noticed suspicious patterns with their finances and turned the case over to the Summit County Sheriff detective stationed in our building.  Summit DD takes our role to protect the health and welfare of those we serve very seriously.  We work very closely with the police and the courts to ensure perpetrators are held accountable to the fullest extent of the law.

Summit DD is the community resource that makes meaningful connections for more than 4,700 adults and children with developmental disabilities and their families. It is the Agency’s mission to help people of all abilities reach their full potential, one person at a time. More information regarding the Agency is available online at
