Community Employment Resource Map
Miami County has strong manufacturing, retail, restaurant and agri-business industries, and people with developmental disabilities have a variety of jobs and participate in all of the major industries in the community.
Known in its community as “Riverside,” the Miami County Board of Developmental Disabilities (Miami DD) has taken an active role in its community. This has assisted and enhanced their connections with local employers, as Miami County businesses have long been supportive of hiring people with developmental disabilities.
Miami DD embraces the Ohio Employment First Initiative and has developed a local Employment First policy. They utilize services from Ohio Means Jobs and participate in local chambers of commerce events to network with community employers. Opportunities for Ohioans with disabilities is an active partner with Miami DD, who also works closely with the local school districts to help students navigate the path to employment after graduation.
