Mission & History

The mission of Richcroft is to create opportunities and cultivate relationships that enable every person to live their best life.

Core Values

Respect

Empathy and kindness go a long way.  Richcroft has built a culture where inclusion and respect for everyone are a defining part of our identity.

Empowerment

We embrace the culture of Servant Leadership. We achieve success by enabling the success of others, both people we support and team members.

Integrity

Given our responsibility to each other and the people we support, behaving ethically is a critical part of our success. Continuing to do the right thing is integral to our beliefs.

Impact

We have a chance to make a difference for so many: the individuals we support, families, our team, our community, and ourselves. We provide experiences that create results.

Innovation

We believe in a workplace where it’s safe to try new things—where we can push the boundaries and learn from things that don’t always go according to plan. We strive for a just and blameless culture that respects all people as individuals and paves the way to genuine learning and improvement.
