Information on the mission and membership of the DD Advisory Council.


From September 26 through October 7, the Service Center East lobby for Developmental Disabilities will be closed to walk-ins. If you need help during that time and don't have a scheduled meeting, you can stop by our office at 5240 NE Elam Young Parkway, Suite 150, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m.-5 p.m., or call 503-846-3150 for assistance.

The Washington County Developmental Disabilities Advisory Council functions in an advisory capacity to the DD Division, Board of Commissioners, and the state Department of Health and Human Services.

The council advises on matters that impact individuals experiencing intellectual and developmental disabilities. These areas include program development, community needs, planning, monitoring, and recommending funding priorities.

15 members serve on the council. Members include service recipients, advocates, professionals in the field, key referral sources, provider representatives and lay citizens. All members are residents of the county or have work interests in the county. The council meets monthly. All are welcome at the meetings.
