BDDS: Building Bridges: Supporting Families and Self-Advocates Through Engagement

A- A+


The Bureau of Developmental Disabilities Services (BDDS) is pleased to introduce Building Bridges. Building Bridges events are new opportunities for families and self-advocates to meet and speak with BDDS’ state staff. These sessions are an important part of the Bureau’s efforts to create direct avenues for individuals and families to share their feedback. These meetings are solely for families and individuals with disabilities to provide a forum for constructive and valuable conversations on successes, concerns, as well as suggestions or input regarding BDDS programs and services. 

At each meeting state staff will provide brief updates from the Bureau as well as field questions about services and programs administered by BDDS. It is the desire of BDDS that these meetings will allow for meaningful conversations that result in positive outcomes and stronger relationships. We hope you will consider joining us! 

Scheduled Meetings


The Bureau plans to continue to offer Building Bridges events as an ongoing activity in various communities and settings across the state.  If you are unable to attend one of these scheduled events please watch for updates on new dates and locations as they are added.
