AHRC Suffolk Academic Partnership

Founded in 1949, AHRC Suffolk is a not-for-profit organization with a mission to support and advocate for individuals of all ages with unique abilities and challenges. They provide programs and services to children and adults with intellectual and other developmental disabilities. Currently, more than 2,500 people receive educational, vocational, residential, employment, and respite services through their forty-two facilities.

AHRC Suffolk employees are committed to providing individualized, high-quality services utilizing person-centered approaches assisting them to discover and define their own quality of life. It is their core values that have helped AHRC Suffolk grow to be one of the region's most trusted organizations and a leading voice on behalf of children and adults with intellectual and other developmental disabilities and their families. At its core, AHRC Suffolk remains very much a family. They are a community of parents, educators and healthcare professionals, volunteers, business partners and supporters bound by a common goal: to provide a life of opportunity for the intellectually and developmentally disabled.
