Rainbow Valley Resource Network, Inc., advocates for and supports the spiritual growth and enrichment of individuals who are working through the labels of developmental disabilities and who have chosen Christian Science as their way of life. RVRN is not currently a residence with a permanent location, which enables us to provide our services nationwide.
RVRN is a family that is always growing and unfolding. The people we serve, our staff and board members, and our volunteer chaperones get together at various times throughout the year to enjoy fellowship, provide support, and engage in enriching activities, including trips to Christian Science family camps.
If you know of an individual or family that can benefit from our services (listed below and on our website), please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or (518) 668-3668.
Our website at rvrnetwork.org contains more information, including our newsletters with stories and photos from our most recent trips to family camps and other fantastic events. We look forward to hearing from you!
