WORKING TOWARDS A BETTER TOMORROW
To Increase Choice, Respect, Ability, and Involvement for the Developmentally Disabled Citizens of Marion County.
“Filling the gaps in service to meet the needs of people with disabilities”
Our primary goal is to find innovative ways to support the families and bolster the independence of individuals with disabilities.
Marion County Services for the Developmentally Disabled has been serving individuals and their families in our local community for over 25 years. Throughout our years of service, we’ve exponentially grown through the demands for needs right here in our own county. Just ask a few of our employees and they’ll tell you exactly how we’re continuing to find innovative health and living support options which foster greater independence.
Marion County Services addresses real mental health and wellness needs through a host of time-tested, specialized tools. We provide quality, one-on-one time tailoring a working plan for addressing real support and health needs. MCSDD strives to seamlessly integrate individuals with developmental disabilities into our community. Providing services is one thing, and it is vital, but most importantly, MCSDD encourages self-advocacy: we don’t just give our individuals the proverbial fish for life- we strive to equip them with the tools they need to successfully catch their own with confidence.
Marion County Services also helps individuals and their families identify, apply for, and obtain health and wellness-based grants which further enable their own self-advocacy and quality of life. The individuals we serve often need adaptive equipment, help with costs for medical travel, and assistance with every-day living – just to name a few. This is primarily where the grant funding is specifically allocated for. Marion County Services for the Developmentally Disabled translates into real, professional enabling of real individuals in our community to continue to receive the quality help they need- this means ensuring quality of life for our neighbors- funds for healthy and fulfilling lives- and the fulfillment of the continuing promise towards tangible equality for every developmentally disabled citizen of Marion County.
