Mission Statement

RHD is a values-driven organization. It is the commitment to certain values which gives us our particular character, focus and energy. We recognize, however, that these values, no matter how worthy and well-intentioned, will not play a meaningful role in organizational life unless all employees strive continually to sustain and foster them. Therefore, we do not merely encourage all members of the organization to support and promote the organizational values, we require that they do so.Although there are a number of values which are important to the organization, certain values have been particularly relevant to the life of the RHD community and collectively serve as its cornerstone: Respect for the dignity and worth of each individual, Multi-perspective organizational process, Empowerment of groups, Decentralization of authority, Safe and open environment, Creativity, Honesty and trust, Diversity, Organizational integrity, On-going enhancement of organizational capacity, Personal and professional enrichment, Quality serviceRHD's vitality and strength require that individuals and employees engage in an ongoing dialogue regarding these values at all levels of the organization. The value statement is a living document that is continually open to review and always subject to re-formulation


RHD is a social-service agency based in Medford, MA, providing residential and vocational services for adults with developmental disabilities. We operate group homes in Waltham, Belmont, Somerville, Arlington, Walpole and West Roxbury and an art-based day program in Medford (Outside the Lines Studio). Individuals with a wide range of strenghts and abilities receive services from Resources for Human Development.
