HPA Disability Services was the new name given to the Handicapped Persons' Association in the 1990s. In June 1999, with the support of the Northern Territory Government, HPA purchased a small block of units which enabled Darwin Accommodation Services to provide more accommodation for people with disabilities. The HPA provided supported employment and training as well as accommodation for people with disabilities. In 2014 HPA changed its name to Helping People Achieve. In 2023 it continues to provide supported employment, accommodation, and other services in Darwin.
