The Resident Help Network (RHN) program is designed to promote "the best of the best" volunteer-run help groups inworld through a cohesive network. Linden Lab reviews each group through an application process, and each group that passes muster is added to our approved network. The first groups into the new searchable network are listed below, as well as in the Destination Guide. The current listings are especially helpful to new Residents. RHN groups can assist quickly and offer the high-quality help needed. Give them a try!!
