Upcoming Powerful Parents Mtgs. You must RSVP

DDRS has reinvigorated the Powerful Parents Groups throughout the state as a grass roots effort to meet face-to-face with parents and families of adults and children with developmental disabilities. Our purpose is to disseminate information, gather feedback and stimulate bonding among parents. Through these groups, DDRS hopes to:
  • make DDRS plans and initiatives more transparent in how they affect consumers and families
  • create a network of family contacts within BBDS districts, including more rural areas
  • share information on available resources for families
  • listen to how DDRS can make connections for consumer and family needs
