AHRC Celebrates 65 Years of Helping Clients Achieve Their Dreams

AHRC Nassau recently celebrated its 65th anniversary at its annual membership luncheon that featured a video presentation highlighting the organization’s history and mission in the Long Island community. Over the decades, the program, which began as a small summer camp in the 1950s, has focused on helping people with developmental disabilities to follow their dreams and make their own choices.

As the agency grew, it expanded to include a residential program, a program for school-age children, and employment services. Now, AHRC supports more than 2,000 people with development disabilities and their families, providing comprehensive care for individuals with special needs and consolidated support services that range from respite care for families to residential placement for clients. AHRC also helps clients to find meaningful work through numerous job placement and training programs, including supported employment. Through this program, AHRC works with businesses such as Rosicki, Rosicki & Associates, which hires people with developmental disabilities.

Hallie Greene, a director at Rosicki, Rosicki & Associates, is a board member of AHRC Nassau.
