What We Offer
Emory Valley Center, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit agency, has been serving children and adults with disabilities in the East Tennessee area for 64 years.
1955: A group of Oak Ridge and Clinton parents, wanting a better world for their disabled children, chartered the Oak Ridge Council for Retarded Children (ORCRC) and started a school for intellectually disabled children in a metal barracks building donated by the Atomic Energy Commission (AEC).
One Way You Can Help!
Emory Valley Center is community centered and highly invested in the East Tennessee area. We provide high quality services safely to the people we support and appreciate our community giving back with your time, talents and finances.
