Located in Connecticut in 1982, Residential Management Services (RMS) is a private, non-profit organization aiming to provide positive supports to adults with disabilities in their pursuit to lead meaningful lives. With homes located in the New Haven, Waterbury, Hartford, Meriden and Manchester areas, we are committed to the mission set forth by the Department of Developmental Services. This is a goal RMS strives to accomplish each and every day, with its emphasis on presence and participation in the community, opportunities to exercise competence, make choices, enjoy relationships, and be treated with respect and dignity. Every day, over 250 lives are supported in the 40 programs of RMS, with each program designed to teach skills that help individuals lead the life they choose and become more independent.
RMS is committed to providing opportunities which foster self-actualization by creating a holistic environment that utilizes and values every person’s strengths and diversities. Through this environment, RMS affirms and supports every person’s freedom to be creative and the right to take risks. We seek to promote a proactive approach to meet the challenges of living in today’s community, while preparing for tomorrow’s world.
As an integral part of each individual’s support network we will focus our efforts on each person living as independently as possible, recognizing and affirming their choices and beliefs.
Therefore people will continue to develop confidence and self esteem, leading to dignity and fulfillment in life.
RMS supports the mission of the Department of Developmental Services with its emphasis on presence and participation in the community, opportunities to exercise competence, make choices, enjoy relationships, and be treated with respect and dignity.
