Employment First

The Preble County Board of Developmental Disabilities is committed to serving individuals in the least restrictive setting. This aligns with the Ohio’s Employment First Initiative which states, “Community Employment shall be the priority and the preferred outcome for working-age Ohioans with disabilities.”  Every person we serve has the right to a job in an integrated setting before any other service options. Duties of the agency includes raising awareness of employment options for individuals, coordinating services between adult day service programs and community supports, educating and supporting local businesses in employing those we serve, and preparing transition students for integrated employment. Ohio Governor John Kasich signed the Employment First Executive Order on March 19, 2014.
