We are the Morrow County Board of Developmental Disabilities!

We are also known to our community as Whetstone Industries, which is our adult facility on Douglas Street, and Whetstone Center, our family and children’s center on Bank Street, both located in Mount Gilead. We provide services which assist individuals with disabilities in enjoying full lives in their communities.

Our organization serves infants through senior citizens with developmental disabilities living in Morrow County. Each person has different abilities, unique needs, priorities and life goals. We provide these services as efficiently and effectively as possible, always striving to be good stewards of the public funds we receive.

Our Philosophy

We believe:

People with developmental disabilities have talents and skills that if recognized and developed, will allow them to be contributing members of a community.

Programs which best assist individuals with developmental disabilities in securing a full life, are independence producing (economically and personally); placed or implemented in the actual locations and environments where community and life activities regularly occur; accepting of personal choice and the natural consequences of those choices.

Individuals who assist those with developmental disabilities to reach their fullest potential, are those who:  hold reasonably high expectations for them; plan programming in ways that demonstrate a recognition of individuality, freedom of choice, and right to self-determination; maintain knowledge of best practices of the profession; evaluate their efforts regularly to assure program focus and direction.
