Making an impact. That’s the goal of Rob DeHerrera, Executive Director of Developmental Disabilities Resource Center (DDRC). He’s not your typical executive director—he’s someone who is truly humbled by the position he has achieved, and who still gets goosebumps when he introduces himself as the head of the organization. As the leader of DDRC, the community-centered board serving people with intellectual & developmental disabilities in our area, Rob is proud of the life-changing services people receive from the organization. He is deeply loyal to DDRC’s mission, and he uses his voice to educate legislators and policy-makers as they create laws and regulations that affect people with IDD and their families. He also uses his voice to connect personally with the people DDRC serves. Rob is dedicated to fighting for sufficient funding for services for people with IDD. He began at DDRC in 1997 as Assistant Director of Finance, so he understands the world of money. As his role evolved into Executive Director, he has proven that his knowledge of service provision and passion for building brighter futures for people with IDD go far beyond the dollars. We are grateful to have a trusted partner in Rob and in DDRC, as both of our organizations do our very best to serve and support people with IDD.
