About Us


Since its establishment by the Ohio General Assembly in 1967, the Lorain County Board of Developmental Disabilities (LCBDD) has expanded from servicing children with developmental disabilities in a school. The Board currently serves more than 2,000 Lorain County citizens through Early Intervention, Murray Ridge School, Supported Employment, and Adult Opportunity and Vocational Centers. Murray Ridge also provides residential services, family support services, and Service and Support Administration.

A seven-member board directs the agency’s operation.

  • Five appointed by the Lorain County Commissioners
  • Two by the Judge of the Lorain County Probate Court
  • At least three must be family members of individuals with developmental disabilities.

Murray Ridge Center, as the LCBDD is more popularly known, is funded primarily with levies approved by Lorain County voters. State and federal funds supplement levies.

By focusing on helping eligible individuals to become less dependent on others and by encouraging them to reach their maximum potential, Murray Ridge Center staff works to help people who have developmental disabilities to achieve lives of increasing capability.
