Read Providers say "Farewell" to DDS Director, Laura Nuss to learn more about Nuss' accomplishments.   An excerpt:

Laura Nuss is credited with making substantial systems changes necessary to create and maintain a high quality disability services model for District residents. She helped ensure that DC has lead the charge for changes in supports for citizens affected by I/DD and was recognized as a dedicated, thoughtful leader by Judge Huvelle in her final Evans v. Bowser hearing earlier in the day, wherein Judge Huvelle noted that the substantial progress that has been made in DC could not have been accomplished without Director Nuss’s leadership. Her efforts have ensured that people with disabilities will receive the supports necessary to achieve vibrant and productive lives as contributing members of their communities.
