Janice Brent has been with Resources for Independence of Virginia (RIVA) since 1996. When Janice started with RIVA, there were only two group homes. She has seen a lot of changes and growth in her 20 years with RIVA. There are now eight group homes serving 42 people and another 50 people being served in their community homes. Janice began her career with RIVA as a Direct Support Staff. She has remained faithful to RIVA and the individuals RIVA supports. She is now a proud Direct Support Associate. Janice truly has a passion for those she serves and enjoys working with self-advocates every day. Janice is an important part of the RIVA family and is loved and respected by her peers, staff and individuals with disabilities. After 20 years of loyal service to RIVA, Janice continues to exhibit love, patience, kindness and commitment. Janice is a shining example of dedication and devotion to the mission of Resources for Independence of Virginia, Inc.
THANK YOU JANICE for your wonderful years of service. RIVA looks forward to many more years of love and support!
