OCBDD volunteers

In recent years, OCBDD has partnered with local food pantries as well as participated in the Ottawa County Relay for Life. One recent endeavor was with the Ottawa County Humane Society, located at 2424 Sand Rd., Port Clinton. When OCBDD REC Specialist, Bri Combs, inquired if people would like to volunteer to work with animals, Jonathan Grayson and Rick Vega were eager to assist, as they both love animals.  

On their first visit to the shelter, Jonathan and Rick chose to spend time in the cattery, as they both have a cat as a pet. They spent time brushing, combing and petting the cats and shared that they had a lot of fun. Jonathan mentioned that his favorite cat was the orange one.  


State accredits Ottawa County Board of Developmental Disabilities

The Ottawa County Board of Developmental Disabilities (OCBDD) has been accredited by the State of Ohio for the quality services and supports it provides to people with disabilities.

An accreditation certificate was been issued to the Board by the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities on Jan. 7.

A comprehensive review of the County Board was conducted late last year by the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities (DODD). The accreditation review is a very rigorous and thorough process, spanning approximately six months. A team of surveyors from DODD reviewed all areas of County Board operations including personnel administration, services and support, and other indicators of the general efficiency and effectiveness of the County Board in the community it serves.
