Hello from The HIVE!

Shoot us an email, give us a call, send us a text -
We love to talk to you!

Laura Rigsby Orsland, Founder/CEO

The idea originated when Laura's son, Tay, was transitioning from middle to high school. With 20 years of advocacy under her belt, tons of research, and countless meetings and discussions with parents, professionals, and individuals with I/DD, the true concept of the HIVE was born. Laura feels fortunate to have found a rockstar Program Coordinator and a  top-notch board of directors whose dedication continues to drive the HIVE forward so that we are not just creating a service agency, we are igniting a movement.
