Our Vision

Our Mission


To assist leaders in creating opportunities for disabled adults and children to be part of their communities.

Develop ways to enlighten, equip, and engage leaders to assist families caring for individuals with special needs within the community.

  • Enlighten area leaders on the disabled in their sphere of influence.
  • Provide educational and instructional workshops, training, and outreach opportunities.
  • Establish and strengthen community organizations.
  • Connect resources and re-establish community based partnerships for the disabled.
  • Empower organizations and community based programs to create outreach for disabled adults/children and their families by working together on a grass root level.
On your local level...

Joanna B. Frank
Founder/Executive Director

I have devoted my personal and professional life for over 30 years to breaking down physical, emotional, and spiritual barriers for the disabled. I didnt realize the truly significant need for those boundaries to be broken until I moved from New York to Virginia with disabled children without any connections. 


The Resource Connection, Inc. leads by example.  We provide the very outreach and services we teach!
Open the doors and celebrate difference in your communities!
