At the Noble County Board of Developmental Disabilities, we help people create meaningful lives and that makes all the difference.

We don’t serve “clients” and we don’t manage “cases.” We serve people and support their efforts to create the kind of lives they want to live. Our person-centered planning process promotes independence and gives people choice and control over resources spent on their behalf.
We know that relationships matter in life, so we develop partnerships that create opportunities for the people we serve to live, learn, work and contribute alongside every other person in the community. When this happens, people with disabilities become valued for who they are and what they can do!
