This year DDRC is celebrating 50 years of serving people with intellectual and developmental disabilities! I have been involved with DDRC for over 33 years and have seen them provide quality, person centered opportunities, receive ethics in business awards, named nonprofit of the year, consistently receive the highest certification of rehabilitation facilities. They also provide families real choices of service providers, treat individuals with dignity and offer quality programs. DDRC is run by a diverse board of directors with the majority made up of parents of individuals, an individual with intellectual and developmental disability and various community members with a variety of backgrounds. DDRC has grown in response to community needs and now serves of 3000 people (from infants through seniors) per year. It has been an easy task to promote such a caring mission based organization!
