A Message from our Executive Director

May has been a busy month at the Harford Center. On May 9th, we held our 2nd Annual Golf Tournament in memory of Anne Cerruto. We had 113 golfers spend a lovely day on Mt. Branch’s expansive golf course to raise money for the Harford Center. We raised over $16,000 to support our meaningful day initiative. The golf tournament was Anne Cerruto’s conception and legacy. I want to personally thank her family for attending, volunteering, and supporting this event and the Harford Center. The Harford Center is so lucky to have so many friends, partners, and organizations support our mission.

Usually Friday, May 13th is thought to be a day of “bad luck.” Not here at the Harford Center. On this day, Harford County Government employees, along with other “friends” of the Harford Center, spent their day beautifying our Center. A huge thank you to all those who helped and volunteered their time to landscape our grounds.

In addition to events and volunteer days, we have been busy spending time in and around our community. Thankfully, the weather is finally starting to cooperate. Please look out for the Harford Center buses as we enjoy all that Harford County has to offer from its gorgeous parks and recreational facilities to local non-profits where our participants volunteer. If you know of a local non-profit that needs volunteers, please reach out to us. We would love to help!

If you are interested in volunteering or learning more about our mission, please reach out to us. We welcome visitors and would love to tell you more about what we do.

Thank You to Our Amazing Volunteers!

A huge thank you to Harford County Government employees for spending a day volunteering at the Harford Center beautifying the Center. Along with Harco employees, several Harco community members joined in the effort. Thank you all for your time, labor, and heart.

Thank You to Everyone Who Helped Make our Second Annual Golf Tournament A Success!

Congratulations to Our Big Winners!

The legislative session has now ended. Thank you to everyone who worked so hard and advocated tirelessly for people with disabilities. Here's where the bills we were following ended up:

Maryland House Bills 103 and 224, which would grant property tax credits and exemptions to certain disabled veterans, both seem to have died in committee.

House Bill 78, which would require employers to provide reasonable accommodations for otherwise qualified employees with disabilities so long as doing so would not pose a financial hardship or give preferential treatment to the candidate with a disability, passed and was approved by the governor.

House Bill 221, which would allow people in the Healing Hunting and Fishing Program (primarily disabled veterans) to receive no-cost hunting and fishing licenses, passed and was approved by the governor.

House Bill 80, which would change the Home and Community Based Services Community Options Waiver Cap, was engrossed by the House and passed to the Senate.

Senate Bill 93, which would increase the tax credits for employers who hire people with disabilities, was returned passed and sent to the governor.

Senate Bill 235, which would allow a $1,000 personal exemption on Maryland taxes for individuals with permanent physical disability, died in Committee.

House Bill 529, which authorizes supported decision making for adults in certain situations, and oftentimes prevents the need for guardianships, was engrossed by the House and passed to the Senate.

Senate Bill 636, which requires the Health Department to reduce the waitlist for Waiver programs, passed and was approved by the governor.
