 Our Mission:  

To enhance the lives, 

develop the abilities, and promote the 

independence of people with disabilities.

Darlington County Disabilities and Special Needs Board is a private non-profit organization that serves people with intellectual / developmental disabilities and related special needs from birth through senior-age.  The phrase "intellectual / developmental disabilities and related special needs" refers to cognitive disabilities, autism, head & spinal cord injury (HASCI) and related lifelong disabilities. 

People with disabilities are a vital part of our community and we strive to provide them with the training and skills necessary for their personal success in all areas of their lives.  We believe that all persons have the right to choose where and how they learn, live, work, play, and socialize.  DCDSNB provides choices to enhance the lives of the special people we serve.

Ruth Blocker, DCDSNB Executive Director
