“Amy” is an amazing young lady who came to HCRS in 2007; she had been placed in residential school due to her uncontrolled behavior issues and inconsistent home life and had a State appointed legal guardian. With the help of HCRS, Amy was placed in more stable home environment with a family that she had already established a relationship with during emergency respite care. With natural supports and the supports from HCRS; Amy has been able to establish a safe and more consistent relationship between herself and her biological family; she has been able to maintain gainful employment; and just last year was legally appointed to be her own guardian. Amy started working part-time at a grocery store and a department store. In 2010, Amy successfully completed a 3 month internship as a front desk clerk. This internship opportunity really helped build Amy’s vocational skills and professional self esteem. Since this internship, Amy has flourished at work and socially.

Annual Appeal Fund

Annual AppealHCRS conducts an annual appeal in the late fall to raise funds to support the ongoing operational costs of running the Agency.

This year will are looking to develop a Life Enrichment Center (LEC) in the Hartford and Brattleboro areas, similar to the one we currently operate in Springfield, where adults who receive services from us can spend time participating in life-enriching activities and conversations with peers.

The COVID-19 pandemic has lessened everyone’s sense of connection due to the often required need for quarantine, isolation or, at the very least, social distancing, to protect the health of ourselves and our loved ones. For the people we serve, this social distancing has been even more serious, leaving people at a higher risk for serious depressionCreating these centers is an essential way of offering these individuals an opportunity to make these important connections. With your support, we can make a significant difference in the health and well-being of our communities.

Donors to our annual appeal can also specify that their donation goes to one of our other funds:

  • Emergency Services – To support individuals who experience a mental health crisis
  • Clevie White Fund – To support individuals in our Residential Program in Ludlow
  • Kindle Farm School – To support our educational program for at-risk boys in grades 2 through 12 
  • Woodstock House Fund – To support individuals in our Residential Program in Woodstock

In addition, donors may choose to honor the memory of a loved one with their gift.

We are grateful for any amount you can donate to help guarantee that HCRS and its programs continue to meet our communities’ needs.
