Since 1969, the Handicapped Development Center has been a not-for-profit organization supporting people with disabilities. We believe all individuals are endowed with the same fundamental rights and needs, are entitled to opportunities promoting the fulfillment of those rights and needs, continue to develop throughout their lives, and should have the opportunity to become contributing members of their community.
As a premier service provider, we passionately advocate on behalf of individuals with disabilities by creating opportunities for them to succeed, to achieve, to grow, and to be happy.
The Handicapped Development Center is accredited by Carf for its Community Services and Employment Services programs. In the Fall of 2016, we underwent a Carf survey and received our 12th consecutive maximum three-year accreditation.
