Rainbow Valley Resource Network

Hope Library

Christian Science families caring for loved ones with special needs often desire to connect with professionals and services that approach their needs differently than mainstream providers. It can be difficult to know where to begin searching for such support.

As part of our Resource Network, we list information that families are open to sharing, as a result of their own experiences – trusting they will find “hope” and provide it to others in need. Let us know if you have documents, references and links to websites that might benefit others, and we’ll gladly add them to this growing section below. Contact us at: admin@rvrnetwork.org.
