The mission of AHRC Nassau is to advocate for, teach and assist children and adults with developmental disabilities to make life choices, exercise independence and develop responsibility. In this endeavor, AHRC Nassau encourages all individuals to fulfill their dreams and become productive members of the community. This is accomplished by providing an array of individual and family supports.
AHRC Nassau provides an array of support services to more than 2000 children and adults with developmental disabilities through a variety of programs (Residential, Education, Vocational, Habilitation, Child Care, Case Management, Supported Employment, Respite, Recreation, Benefits/Entitlement, Clinical & Medical).
AHRC of Nassau County is a waste of time so don't volunteer or/and work there. People that work there is very uneducated. And there is much better agencies in this state that truly care about there workers and the people that they served. I don't recommend AHRC of Nassau county to anyone.
I had a very bad volunteering experience there. They like people that cares about there agenda. They hate people that as concerns. I came to volunteer to give things back. I did asked for services in 2012 and 2013 they pushed me to have services and wanted me to lie on my test so I can have services through AHRC. As soon as I asked questions and went to the state (OPWDD) the volunteering coordinator Jerri walker told me this is not a good place to volunteer I said I leave now. Then after that she said I can stay but with boundaries to like SHHHHH
They could have said if you would like to have services please make an appointment with ___________ at your time when you are not volunteering. instead they forsed me by pushing me to have services. Jerri was acting like a service provider and not my manager. When she treated me like a service provider I did not respect her.
I hope no one volunteers at AHRC because is not a good work environment. They want everyone to think the same
