State and Federal programs provide for 95% of our agency’s budget, 81% of which comes directly from Medicaid. Winona County has one of the largest populations of senior citizens with developmental disabilities in the state, and HCO has been dedicated to serving them for over 40 years in settings that maximize independence while maintaining the highest possible quality of life. As the individuals we serve continue to age, the need for more intense medical care and direct support from staff, family members, and friends continues to grow – in addition, the number of children and adults waiting to receive services increases as well.

Other ways you can help:
Corporate Matching Gifts
Did you know that there are employers out there who offer donation matches when an employee contributes to a nonprofit? When you make a donation to HCO, check with your employer to see if they participate in matching gifts. If they do, simply submit a matching gift request to your employer, and they’ll make their own donation in addition to yours! Match donations are typically a 1:1 ratio, but some employers will match at a 2:1, 3:1, or even a 4:1 ratio!
In Kind Donations
Please refer to our wish list of items we are currently seeking for our various programs. If you’d like to make an in-kind donation, please contact our Events Coordinator, Lynette Johnson directly at 507.474.9536 to assess if your gift would align well in supporting the needs of our organization, as well as schedule an appointment to drop off your donation.
