  • What is a Human Development Center (HDC)?
    A Human Development Center (HDC) is a residential care facility where intellectually or developmentally disabled Arkansans receive 24-hour care and rehabilitation. In each of our state's five HDCs, a full spectrum of services is provided to its residents, including many that receive art therapy or participate in various on-campus work programs or training projects. These programs are some of the ways The Blue Umbrella receives products to sell in-store and online.
