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:
- 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.

For individuals who are unable to manipulate regular puzzle pieces, these puzzles have handles on the pieces. They are educational, adapted, and fun!
- 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.

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