Our History

In 1973, a group of parents of children who had developmental disabilities founded Riverview Arts and Crafts. The name was changed to in 1978.

Riverview Industries, Inc., was established as a private nonprofit organization in 1998. Although all service providers in Ohio are now required to be separate from the local county boards of developmental disabilities, RVI was one of the first in the state to be an independent employment and habilitation center.

The RVI employment and habilitation center, along with the offices, are located three miles east of Oak Harbor at 8380 W. State Route 163. The location is three miles east of Oak Harbor and eight miles west of Port Clinton, on the south side of the roadway.

Mission Statement

Our purpose is to move people toward the life they want to live.

Commitment to Positive Culture

The staff of RVI believes that embracing and sustaining a positive work environment improves the way in which we fulfill our mission. We believe that the ways we treat each other, either positively or negatively, reflect on the service we provide. That service, in turn, affects the people we serve both emotionally and physically.

We call working toward that positive work environment our “Positive Culture Commitment.”
