My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Harc, Inc., Hartford, CT, USA
I began working with HARC about three years ago and joined their Programs & Services committee this past year. I am in awe of the consistently demonstrated teamwork and collaboration across all the departments, focused on the same goal of providing quality work and life/life skills opportunities for those with physical and intellectual disabilities. The team is realistic about challenges and opportunities and focuses on celebrating small successes toward the achievement of major ones. I had the opportunity to visit a group home and found this same culture demonstrated by the home's leader and staff, via their consistent mantra that the residence/ home is for and about the residents of that home and that their role (the staff's) is to provide the right balance of support and guidance to ensure the best quality possible. The residents were unique individuals with clearly different needs and yet there was a spirit of family that resonated.
