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 67 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).
