At the Cuyahoga County Board of DD (Cuyahoga DD), we recognize that dedicated employees are our greatest resource. Our employees play a key role in supporting and empowering people with developmental disabilities of all ages to live, learn, work and play in the community. High-quality customer service and a positive culture are leading values of our organization. We want to enhance and, at times, improve the life experiences for the people we support.
Employees of the Cuyahoga DD are asked to hold themselves to high expectations and to help raise the expectations for people with developmental disabilities. We need to encourage people to dream of a future that may not have been available to them before now; to support parents to imagine a future for their sons and daughters that includes working alongside typical peers and earning equal pay; to focus on how people with disabilities are more like us than different from us; to lessen dependence on programs and systems and instead rely on friends, family, coworkers, and neighbors for support and assistance; and to educate our communities and local businesses on the many benefits of including people with disabilities in neighborhoods and in the workplace.
The Cuyahoga DD hires a wide range of positions. We are looking for everything from therapists, repair technicians, clerical staff, to IT network engineers and HR professionals, not to mention service coordinators to work with the families and individuals we support.
No matter their position, the employees of the Cuyahoga DD are proud to be part of an organization that has made and will continue to make a significant impact in the lives of people with developmental disabilities in Cuyahoga County.
