We are often in need of various items throughout our programs in order to improve and enhance services. Below is a list of some of those needs:

Employment Services

  • Wire Crimper … $376 
    This tool would be used to complete subcontract jobs in the HDC workshop and provide employment opportunities and training for HDC participants.
  • Self healing Cutting Mat … $150
    This mat is used to cut banners and other large items after they are printed.
  • Embroidery Hoop … $195
    This hoop will allow us to meet more customers’ needs, which provides more job opportunities for participants.

Personal Independence Services

  • Three Massage Therapy Mats … $115 each
    Full body massage therapy mats help those folks who experience poor circulation. They are also helpful to calm folks when they are experiencing stressful situations.

    The camera would be used to take photos of all the great things going on at PI!

Residential Center

  • Wheelchair Repairs and Adaptations … $300 to $500 each

    A variety of items are needed for sensory stimulation–things that residents can touch, smell, feel, and listen to.

    This fund is used to provide funds to individuals with limited resources so they are able to participate in community activities.

General Needs

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.

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!
