The quality programs and services your family member receives from DDA are here today. How do you know they will be here tomorrow? Ensure DDA’s programs and services continue into the future by becoming a member of the Developmental Disabilities Association

Membership gives you the power to influence. With a DDA membership YOU have a voice to influence government policy and ultimately, protect the rights of your loved one. A membership with the Developmental Disabilities Association not only shows your support for the programs and services your loved one receives today, but builds our base of support for the future.

In order to accomplish our combined objectives, we need the support of membership. We need families, self-advocates and community members to support our mission and embrace new leadership roles to sustain this organization for generations to come.

Memberships are valid for our fiscal year, April 1 to March 31. A $15.00 membership entitles you to:

  • Show your support for the services DDA provides to your loved one
  • Voting rights at DDA’s Annual General Meeting
  • DDA’s quarterly newsletter – The Star
  • Influence the direction of the organization into the future
