Who We Are

Harris Hands Community Services Inc. was started in 2008 by our Founder and CEO, LaTanya Harris. Harris Hands Community Services, Inc. is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that provides comprehensive services to individuals diagnosed with I/DD. We are based in the Bronx, New York and service people throughout the Metro New York area. LaTanya Harris was inspired to start the organization after working with the I/DD population for many years and noticing that there was a need for diverse and comprehensive services in New York City. The organization started out providing Medicaid Service Coordination and has now grown to include services such as Community Habilitation, In- Home Respite, Holiday Respite, Afterschool Respite, Without Walls Day habilitation, Supplemental Without Walls Day Habilitation and Self Direction/Fiscal Intermediary (FI) services for individuals with I/DD.
