Community Club

HFC proudly offers innovative day programming and

daily basis.

"HFC has really changed my life with all the activities I do! I have made a lot of new friends! And I started participating in Special Olympics when HFC formed a team to join! I play flag football, basketball, bocce ball and golf! I like all the HFC activities I do, but my favorites might have to be cooking, card making, Girl's Night Out and Friday night activities!"
