In 1969 a small group of parents envisioned a place where their sons and daughters with physical, developmental disabilities and/or mental health disorders could learn the skills needed to become productive members of society. From this vision, Hanover Adams Rehabilitation and Training Center (H.A.R.T. Center) was developed in Gettysburg for individuals living in West York and Adams Counties. The goals were to experience meaningful work, earn a paycheck and most importantly having a sense of accomplishment and success.
Now located in New Oxford, The H.A.R.T. Center has provided vocational opportunities to hundreds of individuals with disabilities for more than 50 years. Individuals can choose from a broad spectrum of services and supports including; vocational rehabilitation, community contracted production/fulfillment at The H.A.R.T. Center, supported community employment and Community Participation Supports.
