Congressman Mark Molinaro Visits HCA

Congressman Mark Molinaro recently visited our Residential Services Program with stops at a few of our group homes, as well as visiting HCA's Building Blocks Preschool.  Staff and families shared with the congressman the concerns and hurdles faced by organizations like HCA who care for a vulnerable population.  HCA also celebrated with him all of the abilities of the people in the community we serve!

Please join Congressman Mark Molinaro for a Think Differently Field Day on Wednesday, August 30th from 11:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m. at Arnold Park in Vestal, NY.  Free lunch and congressional certificates to all in attendance!



21st Annual HCA Golf Tournament

HCA held its 21st Annual Golf Tournament on Thursday, August 17th at The Links at Hiawatha Landing in Apalachin.  We had a record 32 teams at this year's tournament.  Thank you to our title sponsor Peoples Security Bank and Trust.  Congratulations to our first place team, Hinman, Howard and Kattell!    

Mark your calendars for the 16th Annual "A Tasteful Day for HCA" on February 24th, 2024 at DoubleTree by Hilton. 


Building Blocks Preschool Summer Camp Wrap Up!

HCA's Building Blocks Preschool conducted three summer camps this year. Each two-week camp had a distinct theme, such as gardening, going to the beach, or participating in sports. Children enjoyed instructive and entertaining activities. Each classroom participated on a weekly water day, in which students were able to play in small pools and a sprinkler. Summer camp is a terrific place for children to learn social skills, make decisions, and try something new in a safe environment. Summer camp provides children with mental stimulation, a sense of purpose, and lifetime friendships. 


HCA's Building Blocks Preschool has been nominated in the Kids and Education Category for the 2023 Readers Choice Awards on Pressconnects. Voting ends August 30th.  Please choose HCA as your favorite Preschool!



The HCA community gathered at Glendale Park in June to celebrate the first day of summer! Each residential home and program had a designated color to wear and shared food to match that color. More pics can be found on our Facebook page at: https://www.facebook.com/HelpingCelebrateAbilities


HCA Values

Over several months of collaborative meetings, HCA employees developed HCA's Values Statements through a series of team-building efforts. HCA values were based on what our employees felt their career at HCA meant to them, as well as their heart's committment to service and supporting a vulnerable population of all abilities!
