The Developmental Disabilities Resource Board of Clay County, Missouri derives its authority from Sections 205.968 to 205.972, RSMo., commonly called the "County Sheltered Workshop" law.
Authority is further drawn from the citizens of Clay County as per the passage of the original county tax levy on April 6, 1971, and from the Clay County Court Resolution dated May 3, 1971, which appointed the first Board of Directors of the Clay County Sheltered Facilities Board. The name of the Board was subsequently changed officially on January 1, 1993.
The mission of the Board is to promote an environment (array of services and supports) whereby citizens of Clay County with developmental disabilities and their families have the opportunity to have productive and fulfilling lives.
The DDRB consists of nine members made up of residents and taxpayers that meet (RSMo) Chapter 205.970 criteria and serve a three year term.
Meetings are held at 920 S. Kent Street, Liberty, MO 64068. View the directions, or contact the Board Office for our meeting via Zoom links.
