Coordination of Community Services


Dorchester County Health Department



DDA's Coordination of Community Services (CCS) assists individuals with intellectual/developmental disabilities and their families in learning and gaining access to resources in their community, planning for their future, and accessing needed services and supports. 

The goal of CCS is to promote services that are planned and delivered in a manner that encourages self-sufficiency, health & safety, real community participation, and the individual’s desired quality of life by:

  • Assuring the provision of Targeted Case Management (TCM) services provided to individuals being served
  • Ensuring the needs of the individuals and families are met
  • Implementing standardized competency based training
  • Enhancing Services, Processes, and Policies

The DDA partners with The CCS providers to understand and be confident with best practices of DDA which is currently in the phase of "transformation" and as we move forward we will continue to develop and refine our processes to enhance our service delivery system.


*If you would like to refer an individual for services through DDA you must contact the Eastern Shore Regional Office at 410-572-5920 and ask for a Comprehensive Assessment.


Maryland Developmental Disabilities Administration (DDA)


 DDA Vision:

People with developmental disabilities will have full lives in the communities of their choice where they are included, participate, and are active citizens.

DDA Mission:

Create a flexible, person-centered, family-oriented system of supports so people can have full lives. 

Our administration:

  • Provides a coordinated service delivery system for people with developmental disabilities
  • Partners with individuals with developmental disabilities and their families to provide leadership and resources to enable these individuals in living fulfilling lives.
  • Is guided by the principle that individuals with developmental disabilities have the right to direct their lives and services.

We do this by focusing on five areas: Self-Determination, Self-Advocacy, Supporting Families, Housing, and Employment.
