Resources for Human Development was founded in 1970 as an organization that would be an agent for social change and guided by its values. From one program, two employees and a budget of $50,000, RHD has grown into a national human services organization serving tens of thousands of people of all abilities. A values-driven organization carrying out the broadest possible service mission, RHD is uniquely positioned to respond to a wide range of individual and community challenges.

RHD believes that where there’s a gap in human services, there’s an opportunity for a forward-thinking solution. RHD is a national leader in creating arts-based day programs for people with intellectual disabilities, nationally-renowned crisis services, one of the largest nurse-managed health care networks in the country, and much more. Please check out RHD’s many success stories and case studies, view RHD videos on programs across the country, see how RHD is making headlines with ground-breaking services or join the conversation on the RHD blog.

RHD has been, and will always be, committed to the highest quality service — and to asking each day: “How can we do it better?” It is a great privilege to provide services to people in need, and to support people as they build meaningful lives for themselves, their families and their communities. In these ways, RHD effects change, one community – or even one person – at a time.

No one does it alone. At RHD, you’re our partner. We work together.

And together, we’re better.
