Our mission is to advance social and policy change so that individuals with developmental disabilities, their families and communities may live, work, play and learn together.

Our vision is that all communities welcome and value people with disabilities and their families.

find services

Are you looking for services and supports for a child or adult with developmental disabilities?

Contact your local community developmental disability program (CDDP) to find out if you are eligible for services.  CDDPs are local state offices serving one or more counties. They determine eligibility and provide case management services, and home and community-based services, to children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD).  Here, an eligibility worker will help you complete the application and collect any needed documents.

The application for DD services is available in English, Spanish, Russian and Vietnamese.  Learn more about DD services from the Developmental Disability Services page on the Oregon Department of Human Services website.

Once you are eligible for DD services, you will go through a choice advising process to learn your options for case management and other DD services available. If you are an adult living in your family home or your own home, you can choose to receive case management services from:

  • Either a services coordinator (SC) at your local CDDP; or
  • A personal agent (PA) at a local support services brokerage.

Support services brokerages are private organizations that provide case management and home- and community-based services to adults with IDD.  Brokerages follow a philosophy of self-determination. They focus on helping people direct their own services and lives. Learn more at

Your case manager is your key to getting help to live the life you want. You need to feel comfortable in this relationship. We recommend that you visit a local CDDP or brokerage to find a good fit for you and your vision for your life.
