DDD partners with agencies and nonprofits that serve Ohioans with disabilities. They work in tandem to ensure that Ohioans who may qualify for SSA disability benefits are aware of the SSDI and SSI programs and can receive necessary assistance when applying.
Some partnering agencies and organizations also provide outreach opportunities for DDD staff. Through meetings, workshops and sharing experiences, DDD staff gains valuable insight into some of the challenges people with disabilities experience while applying for services, seeking community resources and in daily living. This expanded understanding leads to improved customer service for Ohioans with disabilities.
