Café Congo Returns August 6th

In past years, the HCO Musical has been a fun part of the Winona community’s summer.  While we are unable to hold a production in 2021, we’d like to share another opportunity with you that will be coming up later this summer!

Café Congo partners yearly with HCO to acknowledge and support the work done by our agency.  This year, Café Congo will present “Broadway Comes Downtown” on August 6. Join us outside of HCO’s Main Office (66 E. 3rd St, downtown Winona) from 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm for live performances of fantastic Broadway songs during the Winona Chamber’s Dine Out Downtown event! 

We are excited to partner with Café Congo and bring together people who love our shows to enjoy some live music and downtown dining while visiting with friends, old and new. Stay tuned, more information is coming soon!
We love our employees, and we are so thankful for their commitment to the individuals we serve. Last summer, we began a campaign to show extra appreciation to our staff through "Thankful Thursdays," where HCO staff can nominate each other when they see their coworkers go the extra mile in their work. 

Check out our featured staff for May, who were nominated by their peers - and whom we are most especially thankful for. Congratulations!

HCO offers a wide variety of internship, practicum, and field experience opportunities!
