Since 1969, the Handicapped Development Center has been a non-profit organization supporting people with disabilities. We believe all individuals are endowed with the same fundamental rights and needs, are entitled to opportunities promoting the fulfillment of those rights and needs, continue to develop throughout their lives, and should have the opportunity to become contributing members of their community.
