People served and their families will experience confident, seamless transitions from one life stage to the next — from babies to school-age children to adults to senior citizens.
People with developmental disabilities, their families, and their HCDDS and provider staff will be empowered to reimagine, strengthen, and modernize supports for a good life. People with DD and their families will have increased access to technology and advocacy opportunities to foster independence. HCDDS and provider staff will have the support, skills, technology and training that promote engagement, confidence, and competence.
Identify opportunities and address common barriers so all people with DD have better access to transportation, housing, medical care, mental health, and inclusive neighborhoods. HCDDS will engage diverse community allies to partner on key initiatives for equitable access and good quality of life for people with DD and other Hamilton County citizens. Direct HCDDS funding to support these community initiatives.
HCDDS will be thought-leaders and policy drivers to promote sustainable, high-quality support. This includes streamlining internal HCDDS processes, investing in skilled staff, and assuring fiscal health and responsibility. We will collaborate with regional and state partners on systemic solutions to DSP workforce concerns, leverage partnerships to reduce overlap and inefficiencies, and pilot bold, innovative approaches to address existing problems in a new way.
