Welcome to our website!

The Human Development Commission (HDC), your Community Action Agency located in the Thumb of Michigan, serves the residents of Huron, Lapeer, Sanilac, and Tuscola Counties. We run more than 130 programs to meet the needs of people in our communities, especially those struggling financially or needing assistance to become/remain self-sufficient.

The Thumb Area Assault Crisis Center provides a safe, supportive environment for survivors of domestic violence or sexual assault and their children. We believe that every person has the right to a life that is free from violence and the fear that results. It is our goal to provide services that will help survivors of domestic violence or sexual assault, their families, and communities to understand and overcome the effects of such violence. Domestic violence and sexual assault are not private problems. The effects are devastating and far reaching. We believe that awareness is the first step in ending violence, and reaching out for support is the next step.

On September 12, 2013 the Thumb Area Assault Crisis Center celebrated nearly 30 years of service to women and children in Huron, Sanilac and Tuscola Counties.

We want to extend a huge thank you to everyone that came and celebrated with us!!


The Human Development Commission is completing a 2014 Community Assessment. Every three years, HDC asks customers, board members, and community supporters about the four-county service area and the needs of local residents. Please take ten minutes to complete the 2014 Community Assessment. Your confidential answers are important as the agency plans for future service growth. Thank you for participating!
