Who we are

IDDEF is an Idaho-grown non-profit corporation created solely for the purpose of enhancing the lives of the developmentally disabled, physically disabled, elderly and mentally ill through education and advocacy on their behalf.

IDDEF was founded by individuals with extensive experience and expertise in working with the developmentally disabled community as well as with Idaho’s Department of Health and Welfare. Those founders brought their expertise to bear in designing an organization and a set of programs to serve the needs of Idaho’s most vulnerable population.
