01 Aug Dayton Chamber Member of the Month
Rhea of Sunshine, a Dayton Chamber member since 2022 has been a long standing institution in Rhea County. In fact, they have been in business since 1986 when Mary and Donnie Travis founded the organization. Rhea of Sunshine provides residential habilitation and day service options for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. It is surprising to the current staff how much the services of Rhea of Sunshine are needed in our community. Knowing they made lives better assisting people to achieve their goals for increased independence, as well as ensuring people lead meaningful lives is the best and most rewarding part of the business. Not being able to help everyone is the hardest part. Rhea of Sunshine is currently at its residential setting capacity. The desire to help and provide services to anyone who needs it, is just not always possible. In 2024 Rhea of Sunshine will be expanding their services to include ECF, which is Employment & Community First. ECF services will allow us to extend our services to other people not already being served, including young adults graduating from high school.
