The impact we make TODAY shapes our world for TOMORROW.
The Human Resources Foundation exists because of a mother’s wish for her son. Her vision is now a legacy that provides vital support to the nonprofit and charitable organizations who serve and support individuals with intellectual, developmental and physical disabilities throughout Northeastern Pennsylvania.

Knowledge of what is possible inspires us to do more.
The Human Resources Foundation provides financial support to the programs and services of the Human Resources Center (HRC) which first opened its doors in October 1973. It was important to those who founded HRC to secure continued opportunities for their loved ones and their community. Over the course of the last four decades, HRC has expanded to a staff of over 400 caring and dedicated individuals. They continue to provide individualized support and services to individuals with disabilities throughout Northeast Pennsylvania while promoting meaningful life choices and community inclusion.
In addition to providing financial support to the Human Resources Center, the Human Resources Foundation awards annual public grants to nonprofit and charitable organizations throughout the Northeast PA region who have like-minded initiatives as that of HRC.

HRF also offers annual scholarships to high school students and adult learners seeking a college education in the human services, social work, and special education.
Our vision is for a community that embraces accessibility and choice. A community that champions for inclusive spaces and equal opportunity so that we may encourage and empower all those in our region to live their lives to the fullest potential.
There is no greater disability in society than the inability to see a person as more.
