Service & Support Administration

Hamilton County DD Services works with people at all stages of life to identify supports they need and connect them to service providers.

Our service and support administrators (SSAs) use tools to discover a person’s strengths, abilities, talents and dreams. SSAs use this information to create a person-centered plan and identify funding or other supports to help people with DD create a meaningful life.

Miara Miles’ SSA helped her find a home in the community. “I was put in a nursing home due to some medical difficulties,” she said. “My SSA came to see me. I told her how I wanted to be out of the nursing home and I wanted to be in the community.”

Together, they looked at houses and found one perfect for Miles because it let her keep her dog.

HCDDS has 10 SSA teams, each with dedicated expertise. In 2023, 5,012 people had service and support administrators (SSAs).
