Harc provides special needs 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 visionary parents of children with intellectual disabilities who knew that their children had worth and immense possibilities. They became fierce advocates fighting against exclusion, isolation, discrimination, lack of opportunity, unemployment and low expectations. Their grassroots efforts led to partnerships with generous individuals and corporations to raise funds and create life-changing programs.
We help people with intellectual disability and their families by advocating for their human and civil rights and by providing community-based services throughout their lives:
- Early Intervention
- Family support
- Residential services
- Employment opportunities
- Respite care
- Summer camp
- Adult day services
- Behavioral health clinic
