About Our Organization
Our service was originally formed in 1999 as RC Right Home(s). RC Right, a Mental Retardation group home providing residential service that included a respite track, for adults. RC Right Home(s) was founded by two brothers, Robert and Kirby Wright with the purpose of providing fastidious care to people age 18 and over who had been diagnosed with mild to severe mental retardation and /or have physical limitations; who desired to live in a small homelike environment. After being approached by so many families that were concerned that the Danville and Pittsylvania County area offered limited choices and resources for this special needs population, Kirby decided to expand to Day Support and In-Homes services. Robert came back from what he felt was the most “caring, relaxing and tranquil” place he had ever visited felt that our new expansion should offer the same type of atmosphere; therefore, they decided to change RC Right to Negril and add the current services.
