“The mission of the Warren County Board of Developmental Disabilities is supporting people with disabilities and their families to achieve what is important to them. At Warren County Board of Developmental Disabilities, we believe the future is now.”
LifeSpan enjoys a great synergy while working with the Warren County Board of Developmental Disabilities (WCBDD). Both our Representative Payee and Guardianship programs have a large number of mutual clients with WCBDD. Their support of their clients and their continued coordination of care with our mutual clients gives all clients a great wrap-around service to support them in their efforts to thrive in life and in their communities.
Our Representative Payee and Guardianship programs meet quarterly at the WCBDD offices in Lebanon to review any client concerns and keep each other updated and current on events concerning our two organizations. We truly appreciate the time and effort that WCBDD puts into seeing to the needs of each of their clients.
“Our partnership with LifeSpan was been tremendous over the years. LifeSpan staff are supportive and committed to Warren County residents. They assist in different capacities that are important to each person which is their greatest strength and contribution.” -Tony Hidy, Service and Support Administration Director, WCBDD
The Warren County Board of Developmental Disabilities provides services and supports to more than 1,800 people in Warren County who have developmental disabilities. The Board employs 130 people in full- and part-time positions.
LifeSpan’s Representative Payees provide financial peace of mind for hundreds of clients in the state of Ohio, regardless of their county of residence. Clients live a more stable and worry-free life with all their bills prioritized and paid on time for them, and money is budgeted and issued to the client each week for their personal spending.
LifeSpan Guardians are court appointed by the Probate Court and have a dramatic impact on the quality of life of our community’s most vulnerable residents who have no family member able or willing to look out for them. In addition to the LifeSpan’s staff Guardians, trained volunteer guardians play a critical role in the success of this program. Every year the need grows for more compassionate, committed volunteer guardians.
