Our Story

The Human Resources Center, Inc. is a 501(3)c nonprofit agency established in 1973 dedicated to serving and supporting individuals with disabilities throughout NEPA in Wayne, Pike, Carbon, Monroe, Lackawanna, and Susquehanna counties. At the time of HRC’s inception, there were very few options for individuals and community acceptance was sparse. HRC’s visionary founders, a group of local professionals and parents, believed in a brighter and more inclusive future for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities – and so, The Human Resources Center was born.

Our Mission


Through our diverse program offerings, we empower those we serve to make meaningful life choices, encourage self-advocacy, and promote independence while breaking down the barriers that hinder community inclusion.


Our Vision

At HRC, our wish is to provide individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities the ability to realize their potential. This is accomplished through the discovery of their interests and aspirations, the forging of relationships with others through social interaction, and the chance to lead meaningful and accomplished lives. We wish to build a community that embraces individual differences while promoting equality, one that offers inclusion and accessibility to all.


Independence. Empowerment. Inclusion. Community.
