Welcome to the Maine Developmental Disabilities Council
The Council is a partnership of people with developmental disabilities, family members, and state and local agencies and organizations.
We are committed to creating a Maine in which all people are valued and respected because we believe communities are stronger when everyone is included.
To do this, we create and support policy advocacy for individuals with developmental disabilities.
The next Council Meeting will be held on Wednesday, February 8th, 2023 from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM.
Council meetings are open to the public.
