H.A.N.D. has been providing attendant services since 1972. We incorporated as a nonprofit agency in 1976 and are licensed by the Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services to provide Personal Assistant services. We are the largest nonprofit home care agency in Austin with a vision to expand our services to further meet the needs of the poor elderly and disabled. We envision a community where all individuals are empowered and supported, with what they need, when they need it, to live with dignity and choice. H.A.N.D. supports our employees as much as we provide for our clients, and is in the process of developing a new Workforce Development Program.
The MISSION of H.A.N.D. is to provide exceptional innovative care and support for those who need assistance with daily living, while inspiring others to do the same.
We believe that individuals prefer to remain in a home setting of their choice and that by providing basic assistance, we can enhance independence and allow people to remain in the least restrictive setting possible. We additionally have a passion for ensuring that everyone in our community regardless of income, race/ethnicity and other potential barriers has access to the same array of services.
