Medina County Board of Developmental Disabilities



Information for Medina County Providers




The MCBDD is starting a Call for Solutions process with private providers. This is an opportunity for the MCBDD to look at the direct services we currently provide for Adult Day and Transportation Services and discover new ways to assist and support adults with developmental disabilities within the community.

This Call for Solution process is asking providers to submit information on how they may meet the needs of groups of adults as they transition out of MCBDD Adult Day and Transportation Services. It will identify what private provider services are available and what supports may be needed from the MCBDD to successfully assist individuals as they transition.
