Johnson County’s developmental support program provides a way for retirees to give back to community

LENEXA, Kan. -- There are many workers in Johnson County who assist people with special needs, and their care is helping those with different disabilities thrive.

Johnson County Developmental Support assists nearly 500 adults with developmental disabilities.  Of those individuals, 200 came together on Tuesday, Sept. 13 to put together kits that will go out to a laboratory  in the community. This is one of the many projects those individuals are also getting paid to complete.

"In retirement program we're really focused on allowing individuals to have that retirement in their years, as well as volunteering for community areas," Direct support professional Kelci Irby said.
