The Olive Branch is that place, nestled in a beautiful riparian area of Beaver Creek in the Verde Valley, Rimrock, Arizona. The Olive Branch provides a Christian, family-type home for adults with special needs.
For over eighteen years the Olive Branch has provided services for high functioning men and women with developmental disabilities. While they often fall through the cracks of other programs, the Olive Branch recognizes the needs of this very special group of individuals. At the same time providing a safe, stimulating environment, the Olive Branch also provides assistance with living and social skills, emotional support, socialization, health monitoring, job coaching, and financial training. The Olive Branch provides a caring environment where each individual can grow as a balanced and integrated person. This is achieved through jobs, church activities, dances, dating, outings, household chores, Special Olympics, and community service.
