By partnering with us today, you can make an impact on those HCO serves.
Winona County is home to children and adults with developmental disabilities of all ages, each with their own unique needs that require varying levels of support. For over 40 years, HCO has been dedicated to serving them using person-centered practices in settings that maximize independence and maintain the highest quality of life.
Basic Human Needs
Basic Human NeedsMany individuals served by HCO are at poverty level – medications, clothing, and housing can often be a struggle. Funds raised are regularly used to address basic human needs when personal or family resources are insufficient.
By leveraging technology to enhance care and support in new, unique ways, HCO is dedicated to providing services that enhance care for those served, maximize funding, and use resources wisely. Despite their effectiveness, funding for innovative approaches to supporting individuals with disabilities is limited.
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 often require handicapped accessible equipment, as well as modifications to their home environments.
Demand continues to increase as the number of children and adults in Minnesota waiting to receive services grows. In addition, as those we serve age, the need for intense medical care and increased support needs from staff, family members, and friends continues to grow.
High quality training and competency is critical to providing high quality support to those we serve. Specialized training programs and enhanced materials, supplies, and equipment are crucial components to providing effective teaching and intervention skills to direct care employees.
