In a ceremony held Thursday, February 4, 2021 in Tampa, the Human Development Center (HDC) named this community group home “Moore House” in honor of the late Paul Moore and his family who have all been so responsive to the needs of others.
The Paul Moore Foundation, a Tampa nonprofit organization providing resources to support the ongoing mission of HDC, generously donated funds to renovate and update one of HDC’s community group homes.
The Moore Family came to HDC for help with their son, Paul, over 35 years ago and they have been helping HDC ever since. Paul had a developmental disability. He loved to work and spend time with friends at HDC. He was full of joy when he received his paychecks. At the age of 93, Paul’s father, Dr. Waylon B. Moore, is HDC’s longest serving board member and advocate. Paul’s mother, the late Clemmie Moore was a pediatrician and longtime supporter of HDC. Paul’s brother, Bruce is a pastor and his sister, Martha, a career missionary.
When remembering the support Paul received from HDC, Dr. Moore describes HDC as “a diamond that shined through the darkness, and put the sparkle back into Paul and our lives.”
Moore House will be a place where individuals can reach their goals and achieve more in their lives for years to come. For over 40 years, The Human Development Center (HDC) has opened a world of possibilities for individuals with developmental disabilities, teaching them the behaviors and skills they need to be independent.
