The Island County Developmental Disabilities program coordinates, funds, and manages local services for children from birth to three and for adults 21 and over who have developmental disabilities. We work actively with families, schools, the business community, as well as local, state, and federal governments to facilitate full contribution for all citizens who experience developmental disabilities.
Our underlying belief is that all individuals with developmental disabilities have the skills, interests, and talents to enhance their community and have a responsibility to do so. We also know that employment is a powerful way to contribute both to the larger community as well as to continue to grow and learn.
If you are interested in being a qualified provider of Individual Employment, Community
Inclusion, or Child Development Services please contact Mike Etzell to discuss provider qualifications/contract/and for a Request for Proposal packet. We have an open and continuous enrollment policy. Completed packets will be reviewed upon completion. If you are/know an individual with a developmental disability and would like to know more about employment support, contact Mike.
