The individual applying for service must be approved by The Developmental Disabilities Administration (DDA) for funding. New Beginnings Inc. accepts referrals from DDA and Resource Service Coordination.  DDA funds employment, day, residential and support services for people with developmental disabilities. In order for DDA to determine whether a person is eligible for services, the person or someone acting on their behalf must complete an application for DDA services.
