Testimonials

Thank you for a job well done working with us on accreditation. Your assistance is a critical component in making sure we are on the right path to a 3-year accreditation.

Michael ZinnoMichael Zinno
Superintendent, JCBDD

We value our partnership with MEORC and what they do for us. This project has been one of the most valuable. Not only was it timely, as we are making more intentional efforts to support providers, but Pennie brings the ability to connect with them in the ways they respond to. She is a valuable resource for them, which is exactly what we are wanting.

David CouchDavid Couch
Superintendent, Perry County Board of DD

Jason L. UmstotJason L. Umstot
Superintendent, Licking County Board of Developmental Disabilities

I have worked with MEORC for over 20 years as a superintendent. MEORC has assisted us by providing services at a reasonable cost which we could not do ourselves. They provide a level of expertise which we cannot often find in a small or medium sized county, or if we could find it we would not be able to afford it. Working with MEORC has helped us provide better services to people.
