Additional Ways You Can Help



Now that the Caldwell-Thompson Building is open for services, we need additional funding to equip and furnish it for programs like our Vocational Opportunity Center and our Adult Day Care/Senior Services program.  We would appreciate your consideration in giving a tax-deductible gift so Emory Valley Center can continue to support people living with disabilities for many years to come.  Emory Valley Center has met the needs of people with intellectual, developmental and physical disabilities in this community effectively since 1955, and 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, making sure they had a chance at a decent life. This is a tradition that works and has made a real difference in countless lives of children, adults and families in our community. Thank you!

With our busy lives it’s very easy to forget mentally and physically disabled adults. I often wondered why God gave me a mentally disabled 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
