The Benton County Developmental Diversity Program will hold an open house event on Friday, October 20, 2023 from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. in the Benton County Sunset Building at 4077 SW Research Way in Corvallis. They invite the community to join them in their new office location, after resettling from their move in February 2023.

The event is open to all ages and will include free food, music, and fun activities for all. Community members are invited to tour the new space, learn more about the Developmental Diversity Program, ask questions, and get to know the team.

“We’re excited to welcome folks in to share our new space, build community, and celebrate developmental diversity together,” said Developmental Diversity Division Manager, Jasper Smith.

The event coincides with National Disability Employment Month, celebrated every year in October to highlight the contributions of America’s workers with disabilities past and present and showcases supportive, inclusive employment policies and practices that benefit employers and employees.

The Benton County Developmental Diversity Program provides support for children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities that meet state criteria for eligibility. The program serves as the point of access to services and support for people in Benton County, including employment connections and supports.

Benton County was the first county in the state to launch a program for people with developmental disabilities. It began in 1971 as a pilot and after two years, counties all over the state began adopting the program. This year marks the 50th anniversary of the statewide program.

We encourage you to learn more about the program and services and attend the open house event. For Open House information and accommodations, contact
