Hand holding a magnet with the DD Ombuds logo

A new report from the Office of The Developmental Disabilities Ombuds identifies gaps in the Developmental Disabilities Administration (DDA) service system and recommendations for changes that will benefit people with developmental disabilities.

Specifically, this report identifies situations where adults with developmental disabilities lose their housing because there are no, or not enough, support services available to keep them in their home when there is a health crisis.
