Emory Valley Breaks Ground for New Building

Category: ,

Emory Valley Center held a ground breaking ceremony April 15, 2016 which included people EVC supports, EVC staff and board members, Capital Campaign co-chairs Dottie Thompson and Dr. Gene Caldwell, state Sens. Randy McNally and Ken Yager, state Rep. John Ragan and representatives of Michael Brady Inc. and Hickory Construction Inc.

EVC launched the campaign for a new building six years ago when plans were discussed for the probable demolition of the building the organization utilizes for some of its services to people with disabilities. Through the efforts of Thompson and Caldwell, as well as several business and individual donors and grant awards for the project, the capital campaign is at a point where construction can begin, a recent release stated.

“We are very excited to break ground on our new building and for construction to begin,” EVC President Jennifer Enderson said. “So many individual supporters, businesses, families, staff and other community partners have worked very hard to make our new building a reality and we are very grateful for their efforts and continuing support.”

Although construction on the new building has begun, Emory Valley Center is continuing to accept donations for its Capital Campaign in an effort to fully fund the project. If you would like to donate to Emory Valley Center’s Capital Campaign, please contact Development Director Janet Wood by email at janet.wood@emoryvalleycenter.com or call (865) 813-0576.

Emory Valley Center has been meeting the needs of people living with intellectual, developmental and physical disabilities in the East Tennessee community for more than 60 years and currently provides a wide variety of services including: Community Based Day Enrichment, Supported Living, Residential Habilitation, Family Model Residential, Semi-Independent Living, Vocational Training, Supported Employment, Personal Assistance, Transportation, Nursing, Speech Therapy, Physical Therapy, Adult Day Services, Family Support, In-Home Day, Early Intervention Program, Inclusive Early Learning Center (preschool), and Representative and Payee services.
