Welcome to the NH Council on Developmental Disabilities
“Dignity, full rights of citizenship, cultural diversity, equal opportunity, and full participation for all NH citizens with developmental disabilities.”
The New Hampshire Council on Developmental Disabilities is a federally funded agency that supports public policies and initiatives that remove barriers and promote opportunities in all areas of life. The Council is independent of the agencies that provide services to people with disabilities. The Council develops a State Plan every five years to establish specific goals, objectives and strategies to address the most important issues affecting people with developmental disabilities in New Hampshire. The Council carries out its mission through education, advocacy and the funding of innovative projects that make a difference in people's lives.
A Message in Solidarity Against Systemic Racism
The NH Council on Developmental Disabilities cannot stay silent about the recent, and historic, murders of black Americans at the hands of law enforcement. We are disheartened by those injustices as we advocate for equal access and protection for all people. Many in the disability community face multiple barriers to inclusion and belonging. Because disability cuts across all demographics, we support the demands for justice across the nation.
With the help of many disability advocacy groups, the Consortium for Citizens with Disabilities (CCD) drafted and released a statement mourning the murders of Black people by police, names the relationship between racism and ableism, and identifies initial steps the coalition will take to address this intersection. We stand behind their statements and call for systemic equity for all marginalized citizens. You can read the full CCD statement at TASC Training and Advocacy Support Center (c-c-d.org).
The NH Council on Developmental Disabilities seeks to hire a part time Administrative Secretary to support the Executive Director. Must be highly organized and detail oriented!
