About Resources for Human Development, Inc.

Resources for Human Development is a comprehensive, nonprofit, social service organization with headquarters in Philadelphia, Pa. Founded in 1970, RHD currently oversees and supports more than 160 locally managed human service programs in 14 states, working quietly behind the scenes of many programs you already know.

We’re a different kind of company – no divisive walls, no cubicles, no private offices. The CEO sits at a desk on the main floor with everyone else. Our experience has shown that in a relaxed atmosphere where employees have the chance to deal openly and directly with each other, the work environment is significantly better, communications are clear, and attitudes remain positive.

This year Resources for Human Development celebrates 50 years of delivering the highest quality services to people of all abilities, in a Values-driven environment built around respect for the dignity and worth of the people we support – and each other. RHD was founded in 1970 as an organization that would be an agent for social change and guided by its values. From one program, two employees and a budget of $50,000, RHD has grown into a national human services organization that has the great privilege of providing care, resources and compassionate services to more than 50,000 people each year in person-centered, trauma-informed programs across the country. This remarkable journey is a testament to the spirit, creativity and courage of hundreds of people who’ve worked here over the years.
