The Impact We Make For Them Today Shapes Our World In Its Entirety For Tomorrow
The Human Resources Foundation exists because of a mother’s last wish for her son. This selfless woman’s vision is now a personal legacy that provides vital support to 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 the community, providing the support and services they deserved. Over the course of the last four decades, HRC has expanded to a staff of over 400 caring and dedicated individuals as they continue to provide individualized support and services while promoting meaningful life choices and encouraging independence and community inclusion.
In addition to providing financial support to the Human Resources Center, the Human Resources Foundation awards annual public grants to nonprofit organizations in the community who have like-minded initiatives as well as annual scholarships to high school students seeking a college education in the human services field.
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.
