In October 2008, the Division of Developmental Disabilities began a statewide employment initiative. The driving force behind this initiative is the individuals receiving DD services who are saying they want to work. Our vision is to increase the number of people working in integrated employment. As part of our restructure process, there is now an Employment Coordinator in each of the Division's 11 regions.
