The Mission

Mission of the Lucas County Board of Developmental Disabilities is to assure that people with developmental disabilities have the same opportunities and life experiences as all other citizens.  We will inspire possibilities and create activities throughout the community that further this ideal.

  3. We believe all people have a right to share their unique strengths, abilities and contributions with others.

  4. We believe in the importance of families.

  5. We believe we have responsibility, as individuals and as an organization, to be leaders in promoting opportunities for all people to experience full citizenship while maintaining high ethical and fiscal standards.
