“The Columbiana County Board of DD was the first program in Ohio to coordinate a Friendship Walk, which was instrumental in the development of a Best Buddies central office in Ohio. We thank you for everything you do!”
“We (DODD) are grateful for the commitment of the Columbiana County Board of Developmental Disabilities and their local partners in supporting youth to achieve the best possible outcomes.”
“My daughter, Ivy, started with CCBDD in July 2019 and we are both so thankful she did! Ivy has enjoyed learning new skills, working on her independence, and making new friends. She looks forward to going to work and enjoys telling me about her day when she gets home. The staff is very loving and supportive of both me and Ivy’s needs and truly seem to love what they do – which is a big relief when you are entrusting the care of your loved one to someone else!”
“CCBDD has done so much for my family, especially my brother. They are awesome people who really care about their clients."
“The quality of Ryan’s life has been enhanced through the support of the Columbiana County Board of DD and the SELF waiver they provide. The SELF waiver has strengthened his love for the arts including drawing, painting, metal/woodworking, ceramics and photography. Ryan has entered many of his art pieces in the Canfield Fair as well as the Columbiana Street Fair, receiving several second and third place ribbons. As a result of his newfound talents, Ryan has also been able to discover the world of entrepreneurship—from product creation to product sales. We sincerely thank Ryan’s support team and the Columbiana County Board of DD for making his world a better place!”
