DODD has posted a Request for Proposals for organizations to be a part of the Ohio Family Network of services. The Ohio Family Network will be led by people developmental disabilities, as well as their families and siblings, and supported through collaborations with community partners. Family networks help expand access to information and training; foster connections to other people with developmental disabilities, as well as their families and siblings; and increase community engagement and capacity.
The goal of the project is to leverage the knowledge, diversity, and strengths of Ohioans with developmental disabilities, as well as their families and siblings, along with public and private resources, to establish an Ohio Family Network of services that are deeply integrated with neighborhoods and local communities.
One example of these types of family networks can be found in Oregon through the Consortium of Family Networks.
