GREETINGS & WELCOME
So often thousands, perhaps millions, of individuals go unrecognized for their contributions to society and their country. Being cognizant of this, Associates in Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities, Inc. decided to recognized individuals annually for their contributions to their community. _____________________________________________________
To ensure that everyone gets equal opportunity to be honored in this special way, the nomination process has always been open to the public has been successful as evidenced by the number of individuals and organizations already recognized by the Associates. _____________________________________________________
I am very pleased that you have decided to visit our website. On behalf of the officers and members of the Board of Trustees of the Associates in Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities, Inc., please accept my sincere thanks and appreciation for your support. _____________________________________________________
There is a continuous and increasing need to provide the essential and basic needs for those who not only have emotional and disabling challenges but also very often have extremely limited financial resources. Simply stated, AMHDD, Inc.’s mission then is to fill the void.

Chairman, Executive Board of Trustees
