Working within the community is an option for all

The Putnam County Board of DD is committed to helping job seekers with developmental disabilities (DD) explore community employment options.

In March 2012, Governor John Kasich signed an Executive Order making community employment a priority for people with developmental disabilities. Employers recognize that employees with DD are reliable and perform equal to or better than non-disabled employees. Visit Ohio Employment First to learn more.
