A word from Superintendent David Couch:Where are we going in 2014?
The Perry County Board of Developmental Disabilities (PCBDD) provides support for individuals to be as independent as they can. These supports take a variety of forms, including Perco, Creative Opportunities (C.O.) The Employment Connection (TEC) and a variety of adult day services with private providers. In addition, PCBDD works with private residential providers to support individuals living in the community. Supports for families with children birth to three years of age come through the Help Me Grow program. Supports for families with school age children are provided through summer camp, The Academy for Leadership Abilities (ALA) and family support services (FSS).
We will continue to provide these supports for individuals and families in 2014. One of the greatest challenges facing the PCBDD is the increasing number of individuals seeking such supports, coupled with funding reductions the past few years. We will continue to seek ways to be as efficient as possible in providing these opportunities to individuals and families. We anticipate expanding employment possibilities for those completing schooling, promoting responsible choices in community involvement, and encouraging individuals and families to be part their communities.
The support of the people of Perry County make possible these and other opportunities for individuals with developmental disabilities. Thank you for your support of people in our community through the programs of PCBDD.
