MUNCIE, IN—2023 marks the 70th anniversary in the rich history of Hillcroft Services, Inc., a local non-profit organization who provides supports and services to individuals with disabilities. Hillcroft was founded on February 13, 1953, by three local families who wanted to provide quality education and life experiences for their children with disabilities. Through that commitment, Hillcroft has grown exponentially over time and annually improves the lives of over 600 individuals of all ages with intellectual and developmental disabilities in our community. 

This past February 13, a birthday celebration was held for clients and staff that included a DJ, balloon artist, photo booth, cupcakes, and a special appearance by Charlie Cardinal and a few members of the Ball State Code Red Dance Team to commemorate this special day! It was an amazing way to celebrate this monumental occasion in Hillcroft’s history and to help kick off a very special year to come. 

Over the next 12 months, you will see Hillcroft launch a year-long calendar of client and family celebrations as part of their 70th Anniversary Awareness and Recognition Campaign. There will be numerous recognitions of staff, volunteers, individual donors, and corporate partners. You will also see a promotional push which will showcase Hillcroft’s various services throughout the community at local events, through various advertising avenues, and all across their various social media platforms. 

On November 17, Hillcroft will host their annual Thanksgiving Client & Staff Appreciation Luncheon at the Horizon Convention Center and will be inviting all individual and organizational supporters and partners to come celebrate our 70 years of history. Make sure you save the date: November 17, 2023.
