Partners and Members

The IDD Council of Tarrant County is a collaboration of public and private agencies, as well as individuals who have IDD and their families. The Council invites everyone to the table to develop plans for long-term changes in the system, address key issues and provide immediate solutions where possible, and create awareness and inclusion throughout the community. 

Founding Partners

We value our Founding Partners for not only being the first to recognize the need of an organization to provide awareness and opportunities for people with IDD, but also for their annual $8,000 or more contribution to sustain the work we do.
