Welcome to the Board of Developmental Disabilities Website!
Each year, the Board of DD provides services and supports to more than 10,000 boys and girls and men and women in Cuyahoga County. The community knows us best for our early childhood services, adult activities centers, entrepreneurial employment ventures and group homes, but we’re much more than that.
Our full range of services includes everything from in-home early intervention programs for very young children and their families to leisure programs for seniors. Much of what we do goes beyond the walls of our own centers and homes and takes place in the community, where we encourage individuals with developmental disabilities to live, learn, work and play. more...

We're losing our space at the Galleria
The Cleveland YMCA is building a beautiful new facility in the Galleria downtown, and our HeARTworks store is losing its space. Stop in for special in-store-only sale prices before the end of the year. It's been a great run, but it's soon to be no more.
You'll still be able to support local artists who have developmental disabilities at the many community art shows where we exhibit and on-line. We'll keep you posted here on our website about where to find HeARTworks at the shows. And HeARTworks has unveiled a new website where shopping will be much easier than before.
People will remember your card when you send HeARTworks holiday greetings
HeARTworks' 2013 holiday card collection is now available. Your purchase supports local artists with developmental disabilities.
HeARTworks invites you to shop
HeARTworks will hold its annual holiday show at our Rocky River Adult Activities Center, 20120 Detroit Road, Saturday, Dec. 7, 2013 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Plan to do your holiday shopping with us that day. And while you're there, you can buy your holiday tree from our Cleveland Crops tree lot. One stop can take care of lots of your 'to-do' list!
