Harc provides support for a lifetime to individuals with intellectual and related disabilities and their families so they may enjoy lives of quality, inclusion, and dignity.
Help Our Kids Get to Camp
Children & youth with intellectual and related disabilities deserve to experience fun and engaging activities regardless of their ability to pay. Your donation helps us provide two enriching camps for children and youth ages 3 - 21. Capable Kids summer camp and Camp Bulova year-round respite program are 100% funded through private donations and grants.
Our kids thrive when given the opportunity to engage with their peers of all abilities, cultures, and backgrounds.
You can make it happen. Birdies can help. Please give today.
Harc was founded in 1951 by the visionary parents of children with intellectual and related disabilities who knew that their children had worth and were of value to society. They became fierce advocates fighting against exclusion, isolation, discrimination, lack of opportunity, unemployment, and low expectations. Their grassroots efforts forged lasting partnerships with generous individuals, foundations, corporations, and community leaders to raise the funding and awareness necessary to create life-changing programs.
Harc’s guiding principle is to ensure that people with intellectual and related disabilities enjoy lives of quality, inclusion, and dignity. We do this through advocacy efforts and by providing community-based services that guide the people we support along the path to leading lives of integration and meaning.
Harc’s services begin at birth and continue throughout the lifespan, with a range of supportive, enrichment, employment, and residential supports throughout Greater Hartford. To learn more, visit harc-ct.org.
