Intellectual Disability Day Support Services
   

In 1976, RACSB worked with concerned citizens to form the private, non-profit agency, Rappahannock Adult Activities, Inc. (RAAI), which operated out of the old Little Falls School Building on Kings Highway. RAAI is a community-based developmental day program that promotes dignity, independence, individualization, inclusion, and productivity of people with intellectual disability in their community.

 

RAAI works with individuals and their families to identify and develop personal goals through an array of opportunities and choices. These include self-advocacy; recreation, social and leisure skill development; functional academics; career awareness and exploration; employment; assistive technology; supported retirement, and volunteerism.

 
RAAI began its horticulture training program in the vacant greenhouses at Chatham Manor, though a partnership with the National Parks Service.

Today, The Activities Center has its own greenhouse and discovery center onsite where horticulture therapy is provided to participants. Each spring, the community supports their annual fundraising efforts by attending their Mayfest celebration and by purchasing plants.
   
Employment opportunities are contracted through several private providers, including Rappahannock Goodwill Industries (RGI), Choice, and RSVP, where individuals work with counselors to develop personalized plans to maximize growth in a variety of work settings and businesses.
   
RAAI is an agency of Rappahannock Area Community Services Board and receives support from Rappahannock United Way.
