Welcome to The IDD Council of Tarrant County
There are more than 100,000 people with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD) in Tarrant County, 85,000 of who receive no services and supports - resulting in an invisible and vulnerable population.

The following Committees have openings:
- Community Awareness / Marketing
- Family Support / Transition
Members interested in serving on any of these committees should contact Rita Wester at 817-569-4852.
