About Murray Ridge
Our mission is to ensure the availability of services and supports that assist eligible individuals in living the life they choose; to promote their health and safety; and to assist and support the families of these individuals in achieving these goals.
For more than 40 years, the Lorain County Board of Developmental Disabilities, more commonly known as Murray Ridge Center, has been providing lifelong services for Lorain County citizens with developmental disabilities. Our broad range of services and supports assist more than 2,000 individuals and their families annually. Murray Ridge Center has facilities throughout Lorain County, including the Administrative offices, Community Employment offices, Murray Ridge School, Service & Support Administration offices, and three Opportunity/Vocational Centers located in Elyria, Lorain, and Oberlin. In addition, the Murray Ridge Center operates six residential homes in the cities of Elyria, Grafton, Lorain, and Oberlin. All our efforts may be summed up in these words: “Helping people…for a lifetime,” and we never forget that it is both our duty and our privilege to fulfill our mission every day.
