RHODE ISLAND SOCIAL SKILLS ACADEMY

"Robin's Nest"...

…is our place of learning and friendship in the BGC, dedicated to the memory of our good friend, Robin Pacheco. 


Robin was completely dedicated to people with special needs. She was quite knowledgeable in many aspects of the special needs community and always ready to help others navigate their way through the regulations and paperwork.


She was a mover and a doer and a force of a woman. An inspiration, a true believer and a great advocate for those with special needs. Robin saw the need for this program and made RISSA happen. Her vision has now become reality. In her absence, we carry on in her honor, offering our young adults an opportunity to learn, form friendships and become productive members of the community.
