HDC | To succeed. To achieve. To grow. To be happy.

The HDC Wish List

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.
  • Workshop Storage Shelves (4)… $220 each
    These shelving units will be used to store the supplies needed to run the subcontract jobs in the workshop.
  • 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.
  • Puzzles with knobs (10) … $20 each = $200 
    For individuals who are unable to manipulate regular puzzle pieces, these puzzles have handles on the pieces.  They are educational, adapted, and fun!

Residential Center

  • Wheelchair Repairs and Adaptations … $300 to $500 each
    Wheelchair adaptations are often needed as people grow or their medical conditions change. Wheelchair repairs are often necessary as wheelchairs age. The average cost of adaptations or repairs is $300 to $500 each.
  • Sensory Items … $250 
    A variety of items are needed for sensory stimulation–things that residents can touch, smell, feel, and listen to.

Community Residential Services

  • Community Activity Fund … $350 
    This fund is used to provide funds to individuals with limited resources so they are able to participate in community activities.

General Needs

  • Computers … $400 each
    Computers are needed throughout HDC programs to improve efficiency and ensure record keeping is meeting all licensing and accrediting requirements.

If you are interested in purchasing one of these items and making a donation toward a purchase, please contact Carol Foster at 563-391-4834.


For more information about any of these items or to hear about other needs we may have, please contact the 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.
