MCBDD host meeting about transfer of adult services to MASCO Inc.

BOARDMAN, Ohio -

The Mahoning County Board of Developmental Disabilities will look a little different next year.  Due to a federal ruling, the board will no longer be able to provide both case management and day services to clients.  So, like other boards across the country, Mahoning County will contract out its day services.

"What we've tried to explain is services are not going away.  They are just going to be provided by someone different and there are other options out there now, but if you've been receiving services from the county board for 5, 10, 15 years, 20 or more years I can see where it is very concerning," Bill Whitacre with the Mahoning County Board of Developmental Disabilities.

Whitacre says the board will continue to host meetings like this one to answer any questions people have about the transition.
