It was a different world 60 years ago, especially for families of children with intellectual and other developmental disabilities. Not much was understood about their problems. There were few alternatives outside of full-time parental care. But in 1949, a small group of parents came together to form AHRC, a new organization founded on the conviction that every person, regardless of their intellectual abilities, has the right to live with dignity, learn with pride and work to achieve their highest potential.
At heart, AHRC Suffolk remains very much a family ... a community of parents, teaching and health care professionals, volunteers, business partners and supporters bound by a common goal: to provide a life of opportunity for the intellectually and physically disabled. We invite you to join our community and share our vision for the future.
