Our Mission

Our mission statement is in alignment with what is occurring both statewide and nationally with respect to community integration and the resurgence and state by state review by the Department of Justice of the Olmstead Decision of 1999. It is also inherent in the mission statement and Olmstead Decision that a County board must be efficient and effective in their use of public funds, while maintaining choice and providing options for as many people with intellectual disabilities as possible while maintaining health and Safety. The WCBDD continues to strive to fulfill our mission through new creative and collaborating initiatives with our community partners to provide the best services possible.

The mission of the Wayne County Board of Developmental Disabilities, In partnership with enrollees, families, staff, and the community, is to provide choice and options based on individual and family preferences enabling a quality of life satisfying to the individual in learning, living, working, and participation in the community.
