March is Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month. AHRC New York City’s existence is predicated on recognizing the full humanity of people with developmental disabilities and supporting them in living lives of their choosing. From providing the highest quality services possible each day to telling the stories of our Team Members, our families, and their loved ones, we aim to provide visibility to the disability community while always pushing towards a fully equitable world.

You can support these goals by becoming a member of AHRC New York City. Our grassroots efforts have improved the lives of people with developmental disabilities for nearly 73 years. Since 1949, advocacy has been a driving force behind AHRC NYC. Our programs and advocacy goals rely on the contributions of members like you!
