Warren County Board of Developmental Disabilities
GO Concepts Client Spotlight
The GO Concepts team is proud to have so many great clients, such as Warren County Board of Developmental Disabilities. They are an active pillar of Ohio, and we’re so grateful to be their trusted partner for their IT support and management needs.
Who Is Warren County DD?
Led by Superintendent Megan Manuel, Warren County DD offers services and support to more than 2,000 of our neighbors here in Warren County that live with developmental disabilities. Founded in 1966, the board’s primary mission is to deliver support to people with disabilities and their families, helping them to live full lives and achieve what is most important to them.
With an annual budget of more than $25M, more than 65% of which comes from local levy funds, Warren County DD employs more than 120 people in full and part-time positions. They operate five facilities from which they hold events and provide services.
The organization is governed by a seven member board of wonderful, dedicated volunteers; five of which are appointed by the Warren County Commissioners, while the other two are appointed by the county’s Probate Court Judge. An interesting fact… two of the board members appointed by the Commissioners must be immediate family members of individuals served by the agency, one with a family member eligible for adult services, and one with a family member eligible for children’s services, while one of the board members appointed by the Judge must be an immediate family member of an individual eligible for residential services or supported living.
“Warren County is our home, so to be able to be the trusted partner of such a wonderful local organization like the Warren County Board of Developmental Disabilities is incredibly special,” says John Gambill Jr., CEO, GO Concepts Inc. “Megan is an amazing leader, and her entire team is committed to caring and supportive services for those they faithfully serve.”
A really neat thing they offer is what they call “Our Choir Group” or what they are officially called… ‘The Voices of Warren County.’ This is a choir group composed of more than 30 adults with disabilities who receive services from the Warren County Board of Developmental Disabilities. They attend choir practice once a week and perform two concerts per year at the Warren C. Young Center in Lebanon, and perform many other shows at area schools, churches, festivals and retirement communities. All performances are free to attend!
