Capital Campaign

“The truest measure of any society is how it treats those who are most vulnerable.”


Our Capital Campaign to replace the current building and continue the legacy which began more than 60 years ago is moving toward completion. Emory Valley Center has met the needs of people with intellectual, developmental and physical disabilities in this community effectively for over 60 years. This community was one of the first in the nation to offer training, education, and hope to special needs children that others had ignored.

The Emory Valley Center story is about a community that came together and decided to care for every child and adult with a disability had a chance at a decent life. This is a tradition that works and has made a real difference in lives of children, adults and families in our community.

We ask you to please consider a tax-deductible gift to our Capital Campaign so that this legacy and Emory Valley Center will continue to support people living with disabilities for many years to come.

With our busy lives it’s very easy to forget mentally and physically disabled adults. I often wondered why God gave me a mentally retarded daughter and now I think I understand. Ensuring that Emory Valley Center continues to serve my Cathy and countless others is my legacy to her and many others whose parents are no longer here to help them. We are losing the building that has been significant in the lives of thousands of families from the region for more than half a century and I hope and pray that the community will step up to ensure that Emory Valley Center continues for many years to come. “ — Dottie Thompson, EVC Capital Campaign Co-Chair
