A letter from Annette Hargrove, Harc’s Interim President & CEO.
March 29, 2020
Dear Harc Community,
As we navigate through these challenging times, I wanted to let you know that the health and safety of our participants, residents and staff have always been and continue to be our very top priority.
I have never been prouder of our amazing and dedicated Harc team. Over the last few weeks:
We have implemented procedures to ensure individuals’ health and well being, subject to constant adjustment as we get new guidance.
Day programs at Harc’s 900 location have been relocated to the group homes and families’ homes.
All large gatherings have been postponed.
We are delivering a high percentage of our Birth-to-Three services via online tools.
Some of our employment sites continue to operate with Harc staff.
Given the many demands the COVID-19 crisis has placed on Harc we have never needed the help of our community more. Your monetary support will fund:
additional staffing hours required at this time
training for staff that don’t normally work in group homes
additional food needed at the group homes
day program supplies now that we are operating in multiple locations
cleaning supplies and personal protective equipment for our staff and participants
additional technology so we can serve more Birth-to-Three families remotely
I am also hoping the money raised will provide for:
wage replacement for participants that cannot work at this time. Some families rely on these wages to meet the basic needs of their households.
a Harc employee recognition fund for those individuals who have shown exemplary leadership and commitment during this crisis.
Please consider making a donation today.
Your gift will be matched up to $15,000 thanks to the Hadden Family!
Every gift makes a difference especially in this time of need.
Additionally, Harc has created an Amazon wish list

We are truly all in this together, and are so grateful for your support now and moving forward. Sending well wishes to all.
