Richland Newhope/Richland County Board of Developmental Disabilities is now seeking nominations for its CARE awards. The awards offer the opportunity to recognize outstanding direct service professionals and others in our community who support individuals with developmental disabilities in Richland County.

The name CARE is an acronym for the award categories:

  • Compassion – someone who exhibits kindness toward someone with a developmental disability.
  • Advocacy – someone who has been an effective spokesperson for an individual with a developmental disability and promotes positive awareness in the community.
  • Respect – someone who provides and promotes the treatment of persons with disabilities with respect and dignity.
  • Excellence – someone who goes above and beyond to support those with disabilities.

A nomination form is available on the Richland Newhope website (link: https://rcbdd.rnewhope.org/CARE_Awards/). Forms are also available at the Richland Newhope Administration Building, 314 Cleveland Avenue, Mansfield. The nomination deadline is March 16.

For more information, contact Manager of Community Education and Special Projects Troy Smith at 419-774-4215 or [email protected].
