Becky Dickey is waiting.

She is only one of 165 people in Cole County and nearly 5,000 in the state waiting for assistance with much-needed, day-to-day services for those with developmental disabilities.

Only a few on that long list are being helped by the state Division of Developmental Disabilities.
