Chief Executive Officer

One Sky Community Services

One Sky Community Services serves Region VIII; one of ten regions in New Hampshire’s nationally acclaimed support system for individuals with developmental disabilities. This system enables individuals who were once placed in an institution to live more independently and pursue satisfying lives in their local communities.

Area agencies contract with the NH Bureau of Developmental Services (BDS) and are subject to state contract agreements and regulations. The agencies are funded primarily by state and federal Medicaid dollars, each one maintaining regional autonomy and local control. At the same time, area agencies share a common vision with the BDS and work closely with it to sustain the community-based system of services.

Honoring the inherent value of each person, we are committed to:

  • Helping people make choices for themselves about where they live, work and spend time

  • Assisting families in ways they view as supportive
  • Promoting community understanding, acceptance, and support of those we serve
  • Fostering inclusion in community affairs and relationships
  • Working in cooperation with local citizens and professionals to realize this mission
  • Providing services with regard to race, sex, religion, national origin or political belief
