To support the choices of individuals with disabilities and their families by promoting and providing within communities,flexible,quality, consumer-driven services and supports.
Our services and supports help eligible individuals with developmental disabilities achieve self-sufficiency and independence. The Division likewise offers supports for family members and other caregivers. We believe that you can best be supported in integrated community settings and the majority of the Division’s programs and services are tailored to meet individual needs at home and other community settings.
I am acquainted with a number of consumer families associated with DES/DDD as well as some staff of this State agency. The outreach and services for the developmentally disabled (DD) population and their family/caregivers has made a profound difference in their lives.
The Human Rights Committees throughout the Arizona provide independent oversight to make certain the human rights of the DD population are protected, and HRC advocates on all levels to ensure their rights. Anyone interested in serving the community in a unique, challenging, and very much needed capacity among those most vulnerable in our communities would find their volunteer HSC membership personally rewarding and an opportunity to service in a very special and advocative role. Let's Roll!
