Sunrise affiliate, Resources for Independence of Virginia (RIVA), is excited to be part of the solution that will help Virginians with developmental disabilities become valued members of local communities across the state. RIVA shares Sunrise’s mission “to enable people to live valued lives in the community” and directly benefits from decades of experience implementing award-winning community inclusion models across the Eastern United States. U.S. District Court Judge John A. Gibney Jr. in Richmond, Virgina is expected to rule on a long-running case that would see four of the state’s five training centers closed and 1,000 people transition to community living. Expansion is on the horizon.
