Mission Statement To support persons with disabilities in achieving their fullest potential.
Background Statement
CDD's first group home was opened in 1972 by families supporting loved ones with developmental disabilities. CDD was incorporated in 1975. Over 40 years the agency has realized marked program development and expansion; and in other years downsizing. Overall the agency has seen significant growth in the number of people served and staff employed.
 
In 2010 CDD expanded residential services to include Day Program Service.  CDD acquired Special Neighbors Inc in early 2016, an agency with a similar mission and programming.  This consolidation of agencies resulted in nearly doubling the number of individuals served and employees, making CDD the largest provider of services to people with developmental disabilities in the Kansas City area and surrounding eight counties.
Impact Statement

Accomplishments:

  • Completed $1 million Capital Campaign which provided the necessary funds to renovate and upgrade the administrative facility which had been purchased in 2017.
  • Capital Campaign funds also provided the funds to begin construction of an Enrichment Center/Day Program which will allow CDD to expand its ability to reach and serve ID/DD individuals in the greater community needing opportunities that sheltered workshops and other day programs do not provide.
  • Increased Direct Support Professional starting wages which has long been a challenge for retention in this industry thereby reducing turnover by 20%.
  • Received a grant to build a duplex to house ID/DD individuals currently living in privately owned properties which are not always a optimal solution thereby assuring better quality housing.
  • Received grant that provided for an additional nurse to ensure healthcare directives are fully implemented and adhered to.
Goals:

Population Served People/Families with People of Developmental Disabilities
Short-Term Success As with all of us, our individuals are aging, making it necessary for us to provide services to meet those needs, along with the other medical needs they have. We are working with more individuals who require feeding tubes and have ongoing incontinence support needs. Also, people are developing Alzheimer’s and various types of cancer many times resulting in hospice care. Our group living program is full and stays full because of our ability to keep cost down while keeping the quality of care high. The people we support are very happy in their home and it is verified in our annual Client Survey.
Long-Term Success
  • Each person is unique and their personal journey should be respected and supported.
  • With encouragement and assistance, everyone can make lifestyle choices.
  • Lives are enriched through social relationships, active community involvement and access to comfortable and safe residential opportunities.
  • Everyone has the means to express themselves, to communicate, to interact and to develop relationships, resulting in a positive self-image.
Program Success Monitored By The Missouri Quality Outcomes for Person-Centered Plans guide the life experiences for the people we support. The staff use the outcomes expressed by the people receiving services and their team to know how best to support them in fulfilling their dreams and wishes. This approach emphasizes positive life experiences for each individual through quality-of-life involvements. The staff support each individual in achieving his/her outcomes through Gentle Teaching supported by Developmental Disability Services of Jackson County-eitas. Percentages of outcomes completed are calculated and published in the Annual Report.
Examples of Program Success
CDD has assisted many individuals with learning skills to make them more independent. Those skills were developed to the point that several people were able to transition from a group home to their own apartment. However, there have been people who have chosen to remain in the group living environment because of the family-like setting and the socialization with a group of people. When Daniel has been asked if he wants to move into his own apartment, he shakes his head. When asked why, he says, “I like it here.” Buddy, who is 80 years old, talks about his housemates, he refers to them as his brothers.

Short-Term Success Our growth area this past year has been with our Individualized Supported Living program. We grew our program quickly because of the reputation we have with the funders and guardians. We were able to take many new people in on an emergency basis from other providers were not providing the services needed to ensure a person’s health and safety.

Examples of Program Success
My name is Nicole and I live at Kinbrook Apartments and have been for eight years. Before coming to CDD, I lived with my grandmother. My Support Coordinator told me about CDD and what a great place it was. I decided I wanted to try it out and have some independence. Some things I love about CDD are the exciting trips and outings provided to us. We go to Royals and Chiefs games and musicals at Starlight theatre. Every year we go to the Universal Circus and the Renaissance Festival. We go on picnics and to Worlds of Fun. We even went on a family vacation to Branson this year. CDD helps me to be more independent by having staff to help teach me life skills. Staff and I go grocery shopping and cook delicious and wholesome meals in my own apartment. I love having my own apartment at CDD. 
 
I love being a part of the CDD family; they let me live my life the way I want and help me to see my full potential.
Description We offer Day Habilitation services that provide individualized day activities that support the participant’s definition of a meaningful day.

Population Served People/Families with People of Developmental Disabilities
Short-Term Success The Day program has benefitted several individuals who were not able to maintain traditional employment. The day program gives people a place to learn new skills, while helping prevent a decline in functioning levels. Many people take pride in being able to “go to work”, and have meaningful, structured activities to participate in. In addition to crafts, games, daily living skills and social skills, people go on outings in the community. Due to funding issues, it is a struggle to afford the costs associated with community inclusion.
Long-Term Success
  • Each person is unique and their personal journey should be respected and supported;
  • With encouragement and assistance, everyone can make lifestyle choices.
  • Lives are enriched through social relationships, active community involvement and access to comfortable and safe residential opportunities.
  • Everyone has the means to express themselves, to communicate, to interact and to develop relationships, resulting in a positive self-image.

Examples of Program Success Oscar has been with the day program since the beginning. Oscar had difficulties with handling his anger or emotions. He was not able to participate in other day programs due to his challenges. However, he is able to be in a small, familiar setting, with only 3 other individuals, Oscar has been able to make great strides. He doesn’t get as angry as he did before. His beautiful smile is much more evident. He enjoys participating in the activities in the day program, but he is able to do so at his own pace. Because of the small staff to client ratio, and the relaxed environment, Oscar has been able to flourish.
