Everyone has a right to dream, to have a goal. Our agency is dedicated to providing the highest quality of life standards, incorporating safeguards that monitor the rights, dignity and well-being of the individuals so they can achieve their needs and maximum potential.
Our Day Habilitation programs provide individualized services with an emphasis on community interaction. This activity-oriented program is available in both Frederick and Washington counties for persons that require assistance and training with activities of daily living, personal care, academic skills and pre-vocational skills training.
The Human Development Council (HDC) welcomes community volunteers. HDC is a wonderful place to interact with people in diverse stages of personal transformation. Interested persons may volunteer for Individual Support or General Support. Persons working in Individual Support are trained in the same course curriculum as our paid staff and must go through a full background check. They are assigned to a specific person or persons and work with those Individuals on daily living skills or at recreational functions. Persons interested in General Support provide assistance with grounds keeping, office work, and fundraising.
HDC goes to great lengths to hire and train capable and empathetic staff members that possess the qualities of caring and who share the Agency’s core values. We are always looking for hard working, dedicated persons who truly enjoy working in this field and wish to make a positive difference in an individual’s life.
Staffing at HDC is based on the Individual Plan of each person we serve. Regulatory requirements are considered the minimum allowable level of supervision and are only employed under ideal conditions.
“Everyone has a right to dream, to have a goal. We’re here to help them develop it.”
