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.

By partnering with us today, you can make an impact on those HCO serves:
Basic Human Needs
Many individuals served by HCO are at poverty level – medications, clothing, and housing can often be a struggle. Funds are regularly used to address basic human needs when personal or family resources are insufficient.
Innovation of Service
Though our primary funding source comes from government programs, this resource is not adequately designed to meet all the needs of the population we serve. New approaches to service are required, and HCO has been innovative in developing new models of care that will maximize funding and use resources wisely. HCO is developing programs that leverage technology to develop new service models for care and support, but government funding is restrictive in trying innovative approaches to supporting individuals with disabilities.
Our organization is dedicated to supporting a complex population, and we believe that quality services are essential. Persons served with physical disabilities and aging issues require handicapped accessible equipment, as well as modifications to their home environments. Resources are also needed to enhance staff development and competency through specialized training programs, materials, supplies, and equipment are necessary to provide effective teaching and intervention skills.
