BDDS office changes

Several BDDS offices have moved locations in the state of Indiana. Some of these moves also resulted in a change of phone #. Since Family Voices advises families to contact the local BDDS office at least annually, we want to ensure that our members have accurate office contact information (this new list was current as of 10/6/2009)
The following offices have moved or will be moving: Districts 1, 2, 4, 5, and 6
We encourage families to stay abreast of these changes. The information can be found here: http://www.in.gov/fssa/ddrs/2639.htm
If we discover other changes in the future, we will try to alert you to those.

The Bureau of Developmental Disabilities Services (BDDS) is a department of the Indiana Family & Social Services Administration’s (FSSA) Division of Developmental Disabilities Services (DDRS). Individuals with developmental disabilities may apply for services and access information regarding case management, HCBS Medicaid Waiver services, residential and group home services, supported employment, and other disability services by visiting the BDDS office located in his/her county of residence.
