RHA Learning & Leadership Development



RHA knows we must develop every leader in our organization to support our philosophy of person-centered care.  That is why RHA is building our culture of Caring and Leadership, powered by the timeless principles of the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.

Over 150 RHA leaders have already attended a 7 Habits program.  Our goal is to have every RHA leader attend our 7 Habits for Managers series by July 2015.  That is over 600 executives, administrators, directors, program managers, thought-leaders and front-line supervisors!  This program is being delivered by a multidisciplinary RHA team in 8 cities and 3 states between January 2014 and July 2015. 

The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People:

1. Be Proactive
2. Begin with the End in Mind
3. Put First Things First
4. Think Win-Win
5. Seek First to Understand, Then to be Understood
6. Synergize
7. Sharpen the Saw

The 7 Habits will help RHA leaders with:

1. Resolving Conflicts
2. Setting Priorities
3. Managing Performance
4. Accountability
5. Building Trusting Relationships
6. Getting Things Done
7. Working With Others

The RHA Comprehensive New Employee Orientation includes:

1.      Meeting federal and state requirements

2.      The company’s vision, mission, policies, and shared values

3.      An understanding of the people we support

4.      Worksite-specific training necessary to meet specific job requirements


The RHA strategy for providing Learning & Leadership Development opportunities for all employees includes the following:

1.      Mandatory training for employees providing direct support that commences immediately after hiring and must be completed within the first six months of employment

2.      Training programs to achieve organizational goals

3.      Health, safety, and other training designed to meet or exceed state and national requirements

4.      Encouraging continuous professional development and career planning

5.      Supporting development of the skills and knowledge required to meet the needs of the job

6.      Funding attendance at professional development events such as conferences and seminars

7.      Supporting employees who are working on vocational qualifications or academic programs, and encouraging those seeking professional certification

8.      Setting training schedules to accommodate recertification requirements

9.      Monitoring and evaluating the effectiveness of Learning & Leadership Development programs with a view to continued improvement

10.    Keeping a record of the training received by and certifications required of each employee

Learning and Leadership Development is about more than attending a class, it is about learning in a broader context which often encompasses work-based learning, enabling employees to increase their skills and knowledge beyond the classroom or computer.  This can include:

1.      Participating in programs for the people we support

2.      Learning from survey results and incident reporting

3.      Participating in clinical audit programs and clinical supervision

4.      Shadowing and Coaching

5.      QA Assessments

6.      Involvement in the community


Responsibility and accountability for Learning & Leadership Development of RHA employees is shared by the corporate team, unit, regional and local management, and the employees themselves. Every employee at RHA contributes to and benefits by the Learning & Leadership Development mantra of "Quality Learning for a Quality Life."

Service Descriptions

Are you looking for a particular service in your area?  Click here to visit our Contact page and find an RHA office near you.  


Adult Developmental Vocational Programs (ADVP) - ADVP programs provide organized developmental activities for adults with developmental disabilities.  Our ADVP programs give individuals the tools they need to live as independently as possible.  Opportunities provided by RHA ADVP programs include daily living/personal care skills, work training & vocational support, community living skills, and leisure activities. 

Clinical Intake/Assessments - Our licensed clinicians perform diagnostic assessments to determine/recommend the appropriate services.

Day Services – Support & VOCA - These services are offered in non-residential settings and are focused on helping individuals reach their highest level of functioning.  Improvements in self-help, socialization, and adaptive skills are important goals.  Day supports serve to strengthen the skills learned in school or in physical, occupational, or speech therapies.  Day services may focus on prevocational activities such as improving attention span, motor skills, attendance, and the completion of assigned tasks.

Developmental Therapy - RHA shapes this developmental intervention service to fit the unique needs of each child or adult service user.  Developmental therapy offers instruction and training to assist in the building of skills not acquired during the developmental stages of life.  For children, these activities may include self-help, language and cognitive development, and psychosocial skills.  For adults, areas of focus may include self-care and living independently, learning to navigate one's environment with limited mobility, socialization skills, and self-advocacy. 

Family & Group Living - Sometimes a person with developmental disabilities is unable to live with his or her own family but can still be supported in an alternative family setting.  RHA Family & Group Living services include the option of Alternative Family Living (AFL).  Alternative Family Living enables a person to live in a private home with a family and still receive 24-hour support and habilitation.  A targeted case manager monitors the health and safety of this person while receiving these services. 

Group Homes (Level III) 

Home & Community Supports - These habilitation services are individualized to meet the specific needs of each person as outlined in his/her Person-Centered Plan.  These integrated supports include training, instruction, and supervision and can be delivered in a person's home or in various community settings.  These services are focused on helping individuals build skills that will enable them to function with greater independence.  

ICF/MR Services - This residential setting is the most structured level of support offered by RHA, with staff on duty around the clock.  These group-homes coordinate health and rehabilitative services and provide training that enables people with developmental disabilities to function at the highest level possible.  RHA operates ICF/MR homes for both children and adults. 

Independent Living - For some people, only minimal support is required; this option allows these individuals to live independently in their own house or apartment with support available as needed.  This residential alternative reflects the flexibility of RHA support services. 

Long-Term Vocational Supports - The purpose of these services is to help individuals age 16 and over maintain their employment when they no longer need more structured Supported Employment services.  Sometimes people, because of medical or behavioral needs, may require some extra support in their work environment but do not need more intensive vocational services such as help finding a job or learning how to perform the tasks of a job. 

NC START Respite & Team - NC START stands for North Carolina Systemic, Therapeutic Assessment, Respite, and Treatment.  This program offers intervention and community crisis supports for individuals with development disabilities and challenging behavioral health needs.  Each region in the state (East, Central, & West) has two clinical teams that provide 24/7 crisis response and clinical consultation as well as prevention training and crisis planning.  NC START also provides respite services for eligible individuals.  RHA provides NC START services in the Eastern and Western regions of the state. 

Personal Care Services - When individuals need help with the activities of daily living such as bathing, dressing, meal preparation and eating, and care of personal hygiene, our direct care professionals can offer support for these activities.

Residential Supports - RHA residential supports are designed to assist individuals in a variety of living arrangements - whether group homes, apartments, or within their own homes.  We offer a wide range of supports and specialized services - everything from assistance with finding appropriate housing, help with daily living activities and coordination of transportation needs, to helping people build the skills they need to find employment and live more independently.

Respite Services - Everyone needs a break now and then.  We understand and can help.  Our respite services allow you to have that night out or afternoon outing without worrying.  RHA respite services are available either at an individual's home or at one of our respite centers.  Through respite services, we offer caregivers temporary relief and rest while ensuring a high level of care provided by skilled and compassionate professionals.

Skilled Nursing - Some of the people we support require specialized care under the supervision of a registered nurse. 

Supported Employment  - RHA offers supported employment to increase job opportunities for people with disabilities.  We are constantly building local and regional partnerships with the business community that can help the people we support find long-term employment.  We can help job seekers find suitable employment, coordinate transportation, and even offer on-the-job support for as long as needed.  (Click on "Supported Employment" to view the brochure for this program.)

Targeted Case Management (TCM) – Our person-centered TCM services are coordinated to ensure that the people we support gain access to all services that are appropriate to their needs.  TCM services are individualized and comprehensive and include assessment, care planning, referrals for other services, monitoring/follow-up and the development of a crisis plan.

The RHA Strategic Plan


"A satisfied customer is the best business strategy of all"

                                                      - Michael LeBoeuf, Ph.D.


Successful results usually begin with two important elements: 1) realistic, well-defined goals and 2) a carefully considered strategy that outlines how to meet those goals.  At RHA, we believe in planning for the success of the people we support, our employees and the communities we serve.  Our goal is "Setting the PACE for Excellence in Supporting People."  Our detailed strategy for meeting this goal and providing the best services and supports for people with disabilities focuses on 4 key areas:

1)  Improving Quality through Innovative Practices and Person-Centered, Customer-Driven Supports

2)  Ensuring Financial Performance and Growth

3)  Promoting Community Integration, Outreach and Hope

4)  Building Local Leadership through Grassroots Advocacy

Why Choose RHA?

 Here’s what the people we support, their families and caregivers have to say about the services they received from RHA:


“When we were told our son would need to move from an institution to a group home, we were scared.  Then along came RHA.  Since then, we have been comforted time and time again with the acceptance, love, concern, and respect that we and our son have been given.  Our family has always been welcomed, and our thoughts and concerns have been addressed.”    - Lynn P. Lawrence (parent) 


“Each day with RHA, my son is presented with challenges and training that helps him become a more independent part of society.  He lives in an environment that fosters family life and its responsibilities.  It is his home, where he has his own private time, goes out into the community for recreation, and goes to work five days a week.  He has what we all want for our family member – independence.”  - Dee Reece (parent)


“RHA has been providing services for my son for over 16 years now, and I am very pleased with the company all around.  I would gladly refer any person in need of their services to RHA.”  - Peggy Poovey (parent)


At RHA, we are committed to building an inclusive community for the people we serve through advocacy.  Advocacy can be effective in many forms, not least of which is raising community awareness of the rights of people with disabilities and the many opportunities for growth and achievement that are available to them.  An important part of advocacy is the building of strategic partnerships with others in our communities who care about the people we support.  We are also committed to encouraging the people we serve to become their own best advocates through self-advocacy.  Are you looking for more "grassroots" ways of helping RHA fulfill its mission of providing the best possible futures for people of all capabilities? Below is a list of options for people in our communities who want to serve but aren't quite sure how they can get involved:

       Attend RHA fundraising events.  Have fun while showing your support for the people we serve!  RHA fundraisers are not only for raising money.  By providing enjoyable community events, we hope to engage many others in shaping a better future for people with disabilities.   

       Help sponsor our special events.  The contributions of our event sponsors are crucial to the success of all our outreach and fundraising efforts.  Special events not only help us build the resources needed to continue providing high quality services and supports, they also allow us to raise awareness and build relationships with others in our communities who can provide employment and other opportunities for the people we serve.  

       Keep in regular contact with state legislators and public officials.  Believe it or not, when we speak (whether in person, by mail, email or over the phone), our lawmakers listen!  Tell your representatives in government that you care about the health, dignity and well-being of people with disabilities.  Housing and basic care are not enough.  Everyone deserves a chance to work towards a more independent and successful future!  This is a great way to participate in the political process while helping others. 

       Stay Informed.  Research public policy related websites.  Join policy listservs.  Visit the North Carolina General Assembly (NCGA) website to find out who represents you and track bills that will impact people with disabilities.  Through the NCGA site, you can find the websites for your elected officials and communicate with them your concerns about policy issues.  Keep track of updates on the website for the North Carolina Division of Mental Health, Developmental Disabilities and Substance Abuse Services (NC DD/MH/SAS). 

       Donate.  As we continue to face state and federal budget cuts, we as an organization increasingly rely on support from the communities we serve.  No gift is too small.  We appreciate any amount that you can give.  

       Volunteer.  Sometimes a kind word and the giving of one's time can be the greatest gift.  If you would like to volunteer in one of our offices or group homes, please call the RHA office nearest to you to see what kind of community service opportunities are available in your area.

RHA Commitment to Quality & Ethics


       The RHA Quality Assurance System was established to benefit the people we support, evaluate our programs, and gather feedback so that we can always find ways to improve the services we offer.  RHA is committed to doing everything possible to enhance the lives of the people we serve.  Effective regulation, monitoring, and oversight help to ensure that all individuals who choose RHA as their support provider receive the best possible services.

       RHA policies, standards, and procedures are designed to meet or exceed all relevant laws and regulations.  To ensure that we always work to maintain the highest standards of care, we have instituted the Corporate Ethics and Compliance Program.  The RHA Code of Conduct is the cornerstone of this program.   All of our employees receive annual training on this program and are expected to use the Code of Conduct as their guide when facing all professional, ethical and legal decisions.  For questions or concerns involving these decisions, RHA has established a toll-free Ethics and Compliance Helpline: 1-866-742-2428 (1-866-RHA-CHAT).  This helpline is available 24/7 with an intake worker on staff Monday through Friday 10:00 am to 3:00 pm EST.  If you call outside of this timeframe, you can leave a message on the helpline voicemail and someone will get back to you on the next business day.  You can also click here to complete and submit an online report about any ethics/compliance concerns.   

       RHA Health Services is accredited by the international Council on Quality and Leadership (CQL).  We have adopted the Personal Outcomes system developed by the CQL as our standard in the development and evaluation of person-centered planning for the people we serve.   At RHA, being person-centered means that the people we support are the focus of all we do.  We work with people to help them create opportunities and meet their personal goals.  Our mission is to provide safe, healthy, and supportive environments that allow people to build useful skills and thrive in many areas of life including personal care, daily living, socialization, employment, and self-determination.

RHA Health Services is a leading provider of services and supports for people with developmental and intellectual disabilities.  Across North Carolina and in parts of Tennessee and Georgia, we offer a wide range of effective, high-quality services.  Everywhere RHA has a presence, we provide a comprehensive support network for the people we serve that is both flexible and dependable.  RHA programs are licensed by the North Carolina Department of Facility Services and endorsed by Local Management Entities/Managed Care Organizations (LME/MCOs).  For a printable PDF overview of RHA Health Services, please click here.

Founded in 1991, RHA began as a small cluster of ICF/MR group homes in North Carolina developed to offer support to people with disabilities.  Over the years, RHA Health Services has expanded to include supported living, vocational and day programs, periodic respite, personal care services, targeted case management, and much more.  In everything, we seek to demonstrate an organizational commitment to the dignity, independence, and equitable treatment of people, as well as their full inclusion into the communities around them.  Our core focus is the well-being of the people we support, our employees, and the communities in which they live. Enhancing the health, safety, and personal goals of each person we support is always our first priority. At RHA, we provide a holistic, person-centered approach to care guided by a system of values that puts the needs of the people we support at the center of every decision.
