Be ashamed to die until you have won some victory for humanity.
– Horace Mann
Founded in 1961, HMEA pays homage to the work of Horace Mann, an educational reformer who believed that every person — regardless of ability or disability— deserves the very best in learning and opportunities to lead a productive life.
You can help HMEA realize Horace Mann’s vision by helping children and adults diagnosed with autism or other developmental disabilities reach their potential and become productive members of the community.
