Shelby County Special Olympics offers year-round team sports training and competition opportunities for individuals with disabilities ages eight and older. Participating in Special Olympics can help athletes gain confidence and build a positive self-image through physical, social, and psychological development.
Volunteers are the backbone of Special Olympics. From a fan in the stands to cheer on our athletes to coaching, photographing, or using medical training to ensure the safety of our participants, there are opportunities for everyone. If you are interested in participating in activities or volunteering, please contact Jessica Guillozet.

Intermediate Care Facility Search
Have you or a family member ever needed more care than what is available near you? With a tool from the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities (DODD), you can find Intermediate Care Facilities (commonly referred to as ICF’s) that may have openings near or far from where you currently live. Select the ICF locator button to search using your zip code and the range you’re willing to travel.
Wonder what the difference is between and ICF and waiver residential services? Your Service and Support Administrator (SSA) would love to schedule time to talk to you about residential options.
STABLE accounts allow people with disabilities to save money, invest money and spend money on qualified expenses such as healthcare, education, housing and transportation – all without affecting participants’ eligibility for benefits programs such as Medicaid and SSI.
