Quality Lives for People with Developmental Disabilities

It's the Quality that Matters

Going above and beyond to make sure families have all the information they need.
Being there for a resident through thick and thin.
Patiently answering funding questions.
Masterfully keeping all computer equipment up-to-date and running smoothly organization wide. 

These are just a few of the many reasons staff members at Richmond Community Services have been nominated for and received Quality Matters Awards. Quality Matters is a program that seeks to recognize outstanding work by Richmond employees. Through excellence, these staff members have exemplified Richmond's Core Values and made significant differences in the lives of individuals and families. Richmond’s core values include:

Person-centered Excellence * Transparency & Trust * Accountability, Ethics & Expertise * Communication & Collaboration * Quality * Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Revived in July 2022, Quality Matters was on hiatus during the height of the pandemic when all efforts were focused on the health and safety of residents. Since its return, over 50 employees have been nominated with 17 award recipients. Nominations can be confidentially submitted by any staff member, family member, or supporter. All nominations are reviewed by a committee and recipients are chosen based on the actions highlighted in their nomination. Award winners receive both a certificate and a financial gift. 

If you know someone that you feel deserves to be nominated, use the form found here: https://forms.gle/drf5bqJk6d3uamru8 or send an email to quality@richmondcommserv.org. In your email, please include the name of the person you are nominating, the work location, and the reason why you are nominating that person. Please be as specific as possible when describing the event that inspired you to nominate someone. 

This small gesture allows the full Richmond community to recognize all of the hard work staff members put in day after day. Be sure to watch our social media channels for the most recent award recipients!
