Review for Harc, Inc., Hartford, CT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My daughter Saarin and I have been a "HARC Family" for many, many years. HARC provided support for us all the way through her school years and then had a supported employment site ready and happy to have her when she graduated out of the school system. She worked at that job site for 17 years and was recently very excited to move to another HARC job site. She has lived in a HARC group home for many years, benefitting tremendously, and she regularly participates in HARC's recreation programs. She and I get together every week and always see each other at HARC's events and celebrations. I recently retired from a 21 year career on the HARC staff, most recently as Director of Communications in the Development Department and was fortunate enough to have been given the opportunity to establish an art program in 1998, ArtSparks, for HARC's participants. Much to my delight, I am continuing this program in my retirement, and am so happy to continue to be part of the daily life of this wonderful organization. HARC truly makes a tremendous and positive difference in the lives of its participants and families!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

The change I would make if I could, would be to contribute a substantial donation to its endowment fund so that HARC would not be quite as affected by the decrease in state funding. I think all nonprofits, including HARC, could always use more money to work with!
