Kentucky Division of Developmental and Intellectual Disabilities
It is the mission of the Division of Developmental and Intellectual Disabilities (DDID) to empower each person to realize his or her place in the community as a citizen of the Commonwealth of Kentucky. To accomplish this mission, DDID will partner with and support persons with intellectual or developmental disabilities, families, advocates, stakeholders and government agencies.
Kentucky Department for Community Based Services
DCBS services are administered through our network of nine service regions and offices in each of Kentucky's 120 counties. In addition, DCBS utilizes a network of contract officials to deliver services, such as child care. The provision of services is enhanced through a close relationship and coordination with local community partners.
Kentucky Protection and Advocacy
Protection and Advocacy (P&A) is an independent state agency that was designated by the Governor as the protection and advocacy agency for Kentucky. P&A's staff includes professional advocates and attorneys. We are advocates working together with people who have disabilities to promote and protect their legal rights. Through our information and referral services, we try to answer questions about your rights under disability laws.
