HDC WISH LIST

HDC on Facebook

Handicapped Development Center

People with disabilities have the same fundamental rights and needs as everyone else. They want to be loved, to feel worthy, and to be part of their community. HDC helps people achieve those goals.

By being consumers, employees, taxpayers, and neighbors, HDC participants achieve a sense of belonging. From the work they do, they experience pride and satisfaction for doing a job well and being rewarded by a paycheck. By living in the community, they learn what it's like to pay bills and how to be a responsible citizen and a good neighbor.

On these hot days, those new umbrellas are a welcome break from the sun, especially when people are waiting for their buses at the end of the day. Thanks for the grant to put these up Theisen's!
