Harc was founded in 1951 by visionary parents of children with intellectual disabilities who knew that their children had worth and immense possibilities. They became fierce advocates, fighting against exclusion, isolation, discrimination, lack of opportunity, unemployment, and low expectations. Their grassroots efforts led to partnerships with generous individuals and corporations to raise funds and create life-changing programs. Today, Harc provides special needs support for a lifetime. Our services begin at the birth of a child and support them throughout their life journey.
Harc’s Auction & Gala has been an annual fall tradition for over 30 years. This year the gala will be virtual and will live stream entertainment, special guests, and the opportunity to bid on unique auction items. Specially priced party boxes are available so that guests can celebrate in style as they join in the festivities from the comfort of their own homes.

Online Silent & Live Auction – Bidding begins October 24th Sparking Possibilities Award Recipients – The Hartford Yard Goats Long before the first ball was pitched, the Hartford Yard Goats and Harc became strong supporters of each other’s missions and goals. Over the years, the Yard Goats have offered their support to Harc in myriad ways. But the most profound way the Yard Goats have gone beyond mere support is by hiring our participants to fulfill their dreams of being paid for meaningful work. The pride they take in their work for the team is indescribable. We are so grateful to the Hartford Yard Goats for their strong community support and partnership with us. We are proud to name them our 2020 Sparking Possibilities Award winner.
