Resource Fair

The Johnson County CDDO Resource Fair was held in April 2021 with virtual events for individuals seeking IDD services, families, providers, and jobseekers! You can now watch those sessions on demand to learn about employing people with disabilities, IDD service eligibility, the waitlist, how to become an affiliate provider, employment opportunities for direct care staff, and more! 

Hosted in conjunction with the Johnson County Public Library, this annual event aims to connect individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, service providers and local businesses with critical resources. This fair is an opportunity to learn more about the IDD system in Kansas that may be hard to navigate. 

If you have any questions about the event, please contact Sheri Kendall or call 913-826-2507.
