March is Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month

AT Each year, during March – Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month – CCBDD focuses on peoples' abilities and similarities rather than differences, and encourages everyone to welcome people with developmental disabilities into their communities. This month we would like to celebrate and recognize people with developmental disabilities as well as their family members, friends and community, who play a role in supporting them as they pursue their dreams. For some, those dreams include community-based employment or access to residential homes that allow them to live as independently as possible. Many new opportunities are emerging throughout the state to make those dreams a reality, including community-based employment options and residential opportunities that more fully integrate people with disabilities. The 2018 theme for Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month, reflects this spirit — "Celebrate Community" The most effective way to increase awareness is through everyone's active participation in community activities and the openness to learn and acknowledge each individual's contribution.

The Columbiana County Board of Developmental Disabilities is pleased to announce that the annual Staff versus Comets Basketball Classic, the highlight event in celebration of DD Awareness Month, has been scheduled for Wednesday, March 28th at 6:00 p.m. The game will be held at the Lis bon David Anderson High School gymnasium. Come on out and see the CCBDD staff team take on the Columbiana Comets basketball team! The event is free to the public, and we encourage everyone to attend and have a great time. If you have any questions, please contact Josh Martin at 330-424-7788.
