Hi there

We’re so glad you’re here!

Our Origins

HAP is a private non-profit agency founded in 1970 and based in Beaver County.

The HAP adult training program began operating on November 30, 1970. Effective January 1, 1971, HAP became the administrator of the Tiny Tot Preschool Program. The organization expanded again in 1973 with the inception of their Community Residential Services.

Our Philosophy

HAP is committed to the concept of community based programs with the goal of enabling individuals to assume an everyday life as well as one that reflects dignity and respect.

We value what is important to people with disabilities and their families, who are striving for an everyday life. People with disabilities have a right to a life that is no different than that of all other citizens.

Our Services

We have offered a wide range of services to adults and children with intellectual disability for over 50 years.

We maintain that services should be designed to fit the person’s needs, as opposed to having the person fit the parameters of the service. Our programs are designed to teach individuals of all skills levels how to live as independently as possible.

“The greatness of a community is most accurately measured by the compassionate actions of its members.”
