Since 1969, the Handicapped Development Center has been a not-for-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.

Our Mission

carf_goldseal_2016As a premier service provider, we passionately advocate on behalf of individuals with disabilities by creating opportunities for them to succeed, to achieve, to grow, and to be happy.


The Handicapped Development Center is accredited by Carf for its Community Services and Employment Services programs. In the Fall of 2016, we underwent a Carf survey and received our 12th consecutive maximum three-year accreditation.

Thank you HDC Board of Directors, Boosters, and H.A.N.D.S. Auxiliary

During the first 6 weeks of Covid-19, the HDC, Board of Directors, Boosters, and H.A.N.D.S. Auxiliary all made extra efforts to show appreciation for our essential workers.  Some examples of this gratitude were pizza,  popcorn from a local shop, Girl Scout Cookies, catered lunch, Medals recognizing “Finest Moments”, and finally a new pair of Brooks shoes, thanks to the “Comfort for Caregivers” initiative.  This pandemic has reminded all of us at HDC not to take things for granted and inspired us to be thankful. https://handicappeddevelopment.org/wp-content/uploads/Thank_You_Board_Boosters__H.A.N.D.S._305473754_720x720_F30.mp4... read more
