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 62 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).
Emory Valley Center is community focused and highly invested in the East Tennessee area, safely providing quality services to the people we support. We embrace our community becoming involved with our center and the people we support. Thank you for giving back with your time, talents and finances.
