In all aspects of care and all services we provide, RVI strives to help each person we serve be a part of his or her community.
Our goal is to help implement “person-centered plans” developed by the person served, his or her family and other supportive people, the county board of developmental disabilities, and other agencies, so that the person has a life that he or she wants to live. If the person chooses this path, work skills development can be geared toward the eventual goal of getting a job in the community.
Many activities at RVI help the people we serve to feel included in the communities where they live and shop. Staff members accompany our individuals in the community, and the people we serve learn important lessons about social skills, what other people expect of them, the value of money, how to become more independent, and the assets their communities have to offer.
RVI helps the individuals we serve become more included in the community.
