Since 1974, Residential Services, Inc. (RSI) has been guided by one foundational principle: measure success by what is achieved by the people it supports, rather than by what the organization has achieved.
For the children and adults RSI serves, it’s ensured they find success daily — whether this means making a new friend, giving back to the community or getting a job.
RSI is a private, nonprofit organization that provides community-based supports to people with developmental disabilities. Its vision is to empower these individuals to lead lives characterized by happiness, dignity, health and the highest possible degree of social responsibility and productivity.
A central way RSI pursues this vision is by providing personalized living options and related supports to people of all ages with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Within the RSI community, all people are known, cherished and encouraged to succeed, no matter the situation.
Founded in Chapel Hill by a group of parents, community leaders and UNC professionals, RSI was a local changemaker in the 1970s when it opened some of the first community homes in North Carolina.
Continuing this history of leadership, RSI still serves as a model for home and community based supports today. For nearly five decades, RSI has grown from a single home for 6 individuals to 16 supervised-living homes, including Spring Glen, a continuing care retirement community opened in 2003.
RSI is guided by five core values:
- Caring about people
- Building relationships
- Leading by example
- Enjoying what they do
Every action that is taken by RSI on a day-to-day basis is guided by these values.
