We are committed to you

How we're operating during COVID-19


Keeping in mind that the population we serve is among the most vulnerable and that our agency has managed to maintain our usual level of service during the stay-at-home order, the Butler County Board of Developmental Disabilities Offices will remain closed except by appointment. Employees will continue working remotely but are available as needed for in-person meetings. To schedule an appointment, please call 513-785-2800. For emergencies after hours, please call 513-867-5913. 

Our planning is focused on maintaining the health and welfare of the people we serve, many who are considered to be in high-risk categories if exposed to COVID-19. We are also prioritizing our employees and the importance of keeping them healthy and safe.

We are confident that the measures we are taking will reduce risks for both our staff and the community we serve. At the same time, our measures have allowed us to continue offering the majority of our supports without interruption.

We want you to know, we are here for you. If you are struggling during this time, please connect with your SSA or primary service provider. If you are lonely, if you need help securing basic needs, if you need help understanding what is going on or how we’ll continue to be here for you; please reach out.

If you do not have access to an SSA or PSP, you can call 513-785-2800 Monday - Friday from 8:00 - 4:00.

If you have an emergency and it is not during our hours of operation, please call 513-867-5913.
