March Marks Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month

Mar 1, 2015 |
Governor Terry McAuliffe declared March 2015 to be Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month. An estimated 150,000 adults and children in Virginia have developmental disabilities, and DBHDS’s Department of Developmental Services strives to provide resources and supports specifically tailored to those individuals’ needs. We remain committed to the process of transitioning to a community-based system of support for individuals with developmental disabilities so they can enjoy life in their communities and close to their friends and loved ones.
