Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month

by | Mar 7, 2021

March is Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month, a time to raise awareness about the inclusion of people with developmental disabilities in all areas of community life, as well as awareness to the barriers that people with disabilities still sometimes face in connecting to the communities in which they live.

During March, visit this web page and our Facebook page  to discover resources, stories and more from around the state and the country on how supports and services are enabling people with developmental disabilities to become a part of their community in places where they want to live, work and go.

SafeinHome provides real-time, encouraging, 24-hour support so people can choose the next step to their independence.

Here are some resources to learn more and be connected with the country:

Every state has a Developmental Disability Council. They are federally funded, self-governing organizations charged with identifying the most pressing needs of people with developmental disabilities in their state or territory.

Connect with your Developmental Disability Council via social media.
