Helping Restore Ability (HRA) is a nonprofit organization assisting low-income individuals with disabilities of all ages. We do this by providing personal attendant and home health care services to help the child or adult remain as independent as possible so they may continue to live in their homes, go to school and/or work, and most importantly to maintain their independence and dignity. 

  • Over 1,050 clients served
  • Network of 2,500 caregivers
  • 98% clients are at or below the poverty line
  • All ages and disabilities served   

Since 2019, HRA has invested in expanded training opportunities to attendants with the goal of improving the overall health of our clients as well as enhancing their quality of life. Since 2019, participating clients have seen a 50% reduction in Emergency Room visits and nearly 100% reduction in inpatient admittance.

With the national employment shortage, recruiting and retaining attendants has proven difficult. The support that Helping Restore Ability receives from the community enables HRA attendants to receive a more livable wage, receive full benefits, and do their job at the highest level of expertise over and above the state mandated minimum.

Without the superior care provided by these Health Care Heroes, the 1,050 clients served by Helping Restore Ability would risk a forced move to institutional care (such as a nursing home or inpatient treatment facility).

Helping Restore Ability provides:

  • Long-Term Care Support
  • Home Health Services
  • Intellectual Developmental Disabilities Services
  • Attendant Care for Working Individuals
  • Veterans Home Care
  • Private Pay Family Support
  • Care Navigation Center

Mission

Helping Restore Ability envisions a future in which no Texan with a disability lacks the resources to live a full and independent life.
