CANCELLED - March Provider Mingle
Due to an abundance of caution for the health and safety of those they serve, our provider partner for the March Provider Mingle has requested that we cancel this month's meeting. We fully understand the importance of maintaining healthy facilities for those with developmental disabilities and support this action. Please watch future newsletters for announcements for upcoming meetings.
Grant Funding Available
For the second year in a row, the Good Shepherd Foundation of Ohio is taking applications for the funding of grants to organizations that enhance the lives and well being of individuals with developmental disabilities. Last year, the Good Shepherd Foundation awarded more than $250,000 in grants to DD service providers in Ohio. Applications are due May 1, 2020.
DODD Survey for Voc/Hab Framework
A DODD work group has completed its framework for aligning Vocational Habilitation service delivery with federal and state requirements. A major part of the framework is to create a new pre-vocational service, Basic Employment Skills Training (BEST), which will ultimately replace the current Vocational Habilitation service. DODD is currently conducting a survey to identify what is currently known about the BEST service and better understand the thoughts, concerns, and feelings about this upcoming transition from those who will be affected (including people receiving the current Vocational Habilitation service, their families/guardians, county boards, and private providers).
