Our CEO, Dennis Grant, is always advocating for our clients and other people with disabilities. Thank you Montgomery County Board of Developmental Disabilities (MCBDDS) for getting this group together to discuss the shortage of direct care workers.
MCBDDS brought together legislators, provider agencies and other stakeholders to discuss how the shortage of direct care workers is impacting the health and safety of people with developmental disabilities. This week, MCBDDS Superintendent Dr. Pamela Combs and Assistant Superintendent Kamarr Gage met with Ohio House Reps. Andrea White (District 41) and Phil Plummer (District 40), as well as representatives of URS: United Rehabilitation Services and the Ohio Association of County Boards of DD, to discuss how to address the shortage.
