The RHD Difference

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 ACT programsthe largest nurse-managed health care network in the country, and much more.

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.

At Resources for Human Development, our clients achieve the highest level of independence possible and build their most successful lives; our donors, founders and partners have the greatest impact on their communities; our employees build careers they can be proud of. No one does it alone, At RHD, you’re our partner. And when our partners, donors, funders, caring staff, and the individuals we serve all come together to create a community called RHD, we work together to change people’s lives.

And Together, We’re Better.
