Residential Services, Inc. is a private non-profit organization that provides innovative services to people with disabilities and mental illness.

Residential Services, Inc. (RSI) is a non-profit organization that provides services to adults, children, and families with disabilities and mental illness. RSI has been providing innovative services to help people live in the home setting of their choice since 1978. We believe that all people, regardless of their disability, can live successfully in a community-based setting given the proper supports.

RSI serves people who range in age from 4 to 75 years old. The needs and challenges of each person may vary greatly, but the one thing they all have in common is living with limited financial means.

One of the most significant impacts of having a limited income is not being able to afford to participate in community activities and enriching recreational opportunities. A recent RSI survey identified this issue as one of the top concerns for people receiving our services. State and Federal government funding pay for housing, food, staffing supports, and the basic health and safety needs of the people we serve. This leaves people on their own to pay for activities and opportunities that are a large part of what improves quality of life.

Considering how much the people RSI support and the disability community have been impacted by COVID-19, it's more important than ever that we find ways to maintain quality of life and continue to provide opportunities for meaningful hobbies & activities, community events, and entertainment for the people we support. From arts and craft projects to game night at home,  the positive impact of these activities is felt even more during this challenging time. 

In 2020, RSI purchased Rhine Lake Retreat located in Finlayson, MN, which provides an array of safe and accessible outdoor recreational opportunities for the people we serve and our employees. This 5-acre retreat space offers a variety of activities including canoeing, kayaking, paddle boats, yard games, volleyball, gardening, and fishing. RSI programs and employees may use Rhine Lake for day trips or overnight stays, free of charge.

100% of all funds raised on Give to the Max Day will be used to pay for participation in impactful and enriching activities for the people we support.

If you take a few minutes to watch the video on our page, you can hear the story of an individual living at RSI who shares their story about fulfilling her longtime dream of visiting the Minnesota Vikings training camp made possible through donations from a previous Give to the Max fundraiser. Her experience and success is why we do what we do; providing innovative services to the individuals who we serve.

Please help RSI build our Activity Fund for Persons Served by making a donation today. Thank you!
