Employment is a goal for many, including people with developmental disabilities. Miami County offers a variety of careers for people with developmental disabilities to explore. In accordance with the Employment First program and the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities (DODD), our objective is to help the people we serve obtain and keep meaningful jobs in our community. We value our partnerships with local businesses and do what we can to ensure those we serve perform in a way that meets or exceeds expectations.
We partner with state agencies like OOD and local providers to create meaningful experiences for everyone.
Job coaches from our provider partners or other local private agencies ensure the people we serve have the training and support they need to meet their responsibilities and grow as an employee.
