Welcome! We are the Morrow County Board of Developmental Disabilities. We are Morrow DD! We are also known to our community as Whetstone Industries, which is our adult facility on Douglas Street, and Whetstone Center, our family and children’s center on Bank Street, both located in Mount Gilead. We provide services which assist individuals with disabilities in enjoying full lives in their communities.
Our organization serves infants through senior citizens with developmental disabilities living in Morrow County. Each person has different abilities, unique needs, priorities and life goals. We provide these services as efficiently and effectively as possibly, always striving to be good stewards of the public funds we receive.
We are an entity of the Morrow County government, established by the Ohio Revised Code over 50 years ago. The Morrow County Board of DD is governed by a seven member volunteer board of directors, five appointed by the Morrow County Commissioners and two appointed by the Morrow County Probate Judge. The board members are responsible to hire a Superintendent who serves as our organization’s chief administrative officer.
