Developmental Disabilities Program

The Developmental Disabilities Program seeks to contract with providers who employ best practices in the field of developmental disabilities, provides contract monitoring and program planning on an ongoing basis, and selects providers and distributes state and local funds in collaboration with the Skagit County Developmental Disabilities Advisory Board.

All services are guided by values which are the core of County delivered services in Washington:

  • Power and Choice-making our own choices and directing our own lives
  • Relationships-having people in our lives whom we love and care about and who love and care about us
  • Status & Contribution-feeling good about ourselves and having others recognize us for what we contribute to others and our community;
  • Integration-being a part of our community, through active involvement. This means doing things we enjoy as well as new and interesting things
  • Competence-learning to do things on our own or be supported to do things for ourselves
  • Health & Safety-feeling safe and secure, and being healthy.
