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. HARC has named the Hartford Yard Goats as the 2020 Sparking Possibilities Award winner.
