Shared Living

Shared Living is an option within Residential Services in which a person in the community and a person with an intellectual or developmental disability choose to live together and share life's experiences. See first hand in the video above, a success story here in Guernsey County. To learn more, contact Jennifer Oakley, Employment Navigator/Provider Support at joakley@guernseycountydd.org or call 740-439-4451 at the Guernsey County Board of Developmental Disabilities.

 Working Wednesday

Our May Working Wednesday is Carter.

He is employed at Detroit Diesel in the re-manufacturing cleaning unit at the Reman East Plant 2 location. Since starting in January, Carter continues to exceed the expectations of his supervisors. If asked to do it, Carter does it. He is a great worker with an even better attitude.

After graduating from Mid-East Career and Technology Centers, employment was not going to be a barrier for Carter, but transportation was feared to be. Luckily, Carter is able to access transportation from RHDD, that is able to take him to and from work daily.

Congratulations Carter!
