The Organization

  • Health Care and Rehabilitation Services of Southeastern Vermont (HCRS) began serving the community in the fall of 1967.
  • The Windham and Windsor Regional Planning and Development Committee had been charged with the task of taking a census of Windham-Windsor county citizens suffering from developmental disabilities. With the task completed, members of the committee realized that the identified citizens had many other needs as well – health issues, medical disabilities, rehabilitation needs – and the group incorporated with the sole purpose of addressing these needs.
  • Since the early 1990’s, HCRS has been a major community mental health agency, providing comprehensive services to Vermonters across Windsor and Windham counties.
  • Serving over 4500 individuals each year through its five major service programs, our highly trained staff and dedicated Board of Directors continually strive to improve the organization’s outstanding services and ensure they meet the needs of local community members.
  • HCRS is accredited by The Joint Commission.


The Community 

  • Want to play outside Many of the ski resorts that dot the Green Mountain State have tons to offer (yes, even in spring, summer and fall – ever been ziplining, or adventured in the treetops) When it’s hot, Vermont’s lakes, rivers and recreation trails beckon around the state.
  • Vermont’s museums, galleries, artisan shops and factories are always opening their doors to curious visitors, showcasing uniquely captivating history and locally handcrafted products.
  • Vermont’s craft beer industry is blossoming, leading the nation in breweries and brew pubs per capita and racking up honors and awards for quality and innovation. Local Vermont craft brews are menu staples statewide, and whole trip itineraries center around sampling rare beers.
  • With 67 mountains statewide, there's no shortage of opportunities to explore the rugged terrain and take in one of our favorite views – the Green Mountains from a summit. If mountains aren't your speed, Vermont has a growing number of paths and rail trails, and hundreds of miles of back roads and country lanes that allow people of all skill levels to get out and enjoy the outdoors.
