Always There is a statewide, yearlong campaign to recognize the 50th anniversary of the creation of Ohio’s county boards of developmental disabilities by the Ohio General Assembly on October 25, 1967.

The mission of the campaign is to unite all 88 Ohio county boards in celebration of their shared heritage and accomplishments, and to recognize the continuity of support, promotion of opportunity, history of partnership, and being Always There for the people, families, and communities they serve.

The campaign is sponsored by the Ohio Association of County Boards of Developmental Disabilities (OACB), a nonprofit organization specializing in providing information, continuing education, and legislative support to Ohio’s 88 county boards of developmental disabilities.
