A Mother's Last Wish - A Vision for the Future
The Human Resources Foundation was born from a mother's love - a last wish for her son. This selfless woman’s vision is now a personal legacy that provides vital support to individuals with intellectual, developmental and physical disabilities throughout Northeastern Pennsylvania.
The mission of the Human Resources Center Foundation is to enhance the quality of life and well-being of individuals with disabilities throughout Northeastern Pennsylvania, providing long-term financial support to the programs and services of the Human Resources Center while offering annual public grants and school scholarships to those in the community aligned with similar initiatives.
Our vision is for a community that embraces accessibility and choice, one that champions for inclusive spaces and equal opportunity so that we may encourage and empower all those in our region to live their lives to the fullest potential.
Who Supports HRF?
If you are someone who aspires for a community that is built on equal opportunity, inclusion, and diversity, then you are someone who supports the Human Resources Foundation. At HRF, we believe in choice, in individualized support, in self-advocacy, in independence and in living life to our fullest potential. Even if you yourself have not had the privilege to know, love, or care for someone with a disability, our vision is something we all can strive towards within our community.
“Disability is natural. We must stop believing that disabilities keep a person from doing something. Because that’s not true. Having a disability doesn’t stop me from doing anything.”
― Benjamin Snow, Grade 8, in his essay “Attitudes About People with Disabilities”
