“Dignity, full rights of citizenship, cultural diversity,
equal opportunity, and full participation for
all NH citizens with developmental disabilities.”
The New Hampshire Council on Developmental Disabilities is a federally funded agency that supports public policies and initiatives that remove barriers and promote opportunities in all areas of life. The Council is independent of the agencies that provide services to people with disabilities. The Council develops a State Plan every five years to establish specific goals, objectives and strategies to address the most important issues affecting people with developmental disabilities in New Hampshire. The Council carries out its mission through education, advocacy and the funding of innovative projects that make a difference in people's lives.
The Council is also pleased to announce that Jean Crouch has been appointed by the Governor as a new member of the NH Council on Developmental Disabilities. Jean comes to us from the Department of Health and Human Services, Bureau of Elderly and Adult Services/Long-Term Supports and Services, and we are thrilled to have her on-board!
