H.A.N.D.S. Auxillary

KautzFamily “Help Achieve New Direction and Skills” is the H.A.N.D.S. Auxiliary motto. Through the Auxiliary’s many successful endeavors, they have impacted the lives of countless individuals with disabilities.

The Auxiliary is a group of people who support the work of the Handicapped Development Center by raising funds for programs. Their major event is an annual golf tournament and auction. The golf tournament is held the first Monday of June with the auction being the Sunday evening prior to the golf tournament.

The proceeds of these events are donated to HDC. Over the years, the H.A.N.D.S.’s donations have allowed the Center to purchase wheelchairs, vans, production equipment, computers, therapy equipment and much, much more! The Auxiliary donations to the Center have totaled well over $1 million!

Want to get involved?

The HANDS Auxiliary always welcomes new, enthusiastic members.  The amount of time you want to commit is really up to you.  For more information, please contact HDC at 563-391-4834 or e-mail Carol Foster at carolfoster@hdcmail.org.

LEGISLATION INFO

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.
