- HRA operates at 5% administration costs, with 95 cents of every dollar directed to care for HRA clients: people with disabilities.
- 98% of HRA clients have incomes at or below poverty levels, low enough that they qualify for Medicaid.
- HRA provides care to any disabling condition, both physical and intellectual. Cerebral palsy, autism, spinal cord injury, developmental delay, Down syndrome, multiple sclerosis, dementia, diabetes, quadriplegia and spina bifida are the most common diagnoses for which HRA provides care.
- For every $1,000 donated, HRA can initiate services for an additional person with a disability valued at $26,000 per HRA client on average. Because the condition is typically permanent, a client will receive services for years, often for the remainder of his or her life. Estimated average value of the lifetime of services for HRA clients is $650,000 per client. ($26,000 per client multiplied by 25, which is the average number of years an HRA client receives services) The $1,000 initial per client out of pocket cost is not reimbursable to HRA and must be raised from funds provided by generous individual donors, corporate sponsors, and foundations.
