Mission and Vision

Mission Statement: The Harford Center promotes dignity, safety, stability, choice, and community integration for individuals with disabilities

Vision: That each person will have a meaningful day every day as defined by him or her and that individuals served by The Harford Center will have the appropriate supports they need to live the lives they choose. Our goal is to ensure that all of the individuals we support in programs are integrated into their communities through social activities, volunteering, employment, and recreation.

It is the Harford Center’s philosophy that each individual has the right to be treated with dignity and respect. 

Each individual will be  provided with programs that facilitate his/her personal growth and development. The goal of the program is to optimize the development of skills that will lead to more independent functioning and job skills that can be used in the community.   

The Harford Center is committed to a work environment in which all individuals are treated with respect and dignity.
