About Us

About RIPIN:

RIPIN deploys a peer model to support people with special healthcare and education needs across the whole lifespan. Founded in 1991 by a group of parents of children with special needs, RIPIN continues to be peer-led: a majority of our board and more than three-fourths of our staff are parents or caretakers of loved ones with special needs. RIPIN’s peer professionals now help more than 45,000 Rhode Islanders every year navigate healthcare, schools, and other support systems.

The Rhode Island Parent Information Network has won a 2020 Best Places to Work Award from PBN!

RIPIN is proud to be one of the 66 Rhode Island companies recognized based on human resources policies and confidential surveys of employees put together by Best Companies Group.
