Harc provides support for a lifetime to individuals with intellectual and related disabilities and their families so they may enjoy lives of quality, inclusion, and dignity.
Harc was founded in 1951 by the visionary parents of children with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) who knew that their children had worth and were of value to society. They became fierce advocates fighting against exclusion, isolation, discrimination, lack of opportunity, unemployment, and low expectations. Their grassroots efforts forged lasting partnerships with generous individuals, foundations, corporations, and community leaders to raise the funding and awareness necessary to create life-changing programs.
Harc’s guiding principle is to ensure that people with intellectual disabilities enjoy lives of quality, inclusion, and dignity. We do this through advocacy efforts and by providing community-based services that guide the people we support along the path toward building great lives, and leading lives of inclusion and meaning.
Harc’s services begin at birth and continue throughout the lifespan, with a range of supportive, enrichment, employment, and residential supports throughout Greater Hartford.
