Building the Future...Together.

Adults with disabilities are far less likely to enjoy life’s most basic experiences. For nearly 70 years, Eggleston has been creating pathways for adults with disabilities and yet despite this and the Americans with Disabilities Act decades ago, access and opportunities to jobs, housing, transportation, and support services remain limited for many. Special populations, like Veterans with disabilities and brain injury survivors face additional challenges that often lead to homelessness, addiction, and sadly, even suicide.

Together we must do more now. Join me in support of Eggleston’s Building the Future campaign.

As a leading nonprofit in our region, Eggleston is regarded as a trusted provider of choice – offering a menu of services for those with ranging disabilities to help them gain access to employment, housing, community engagement, and support services.

Over the last few decades, society and legislation has moved from institutionalized services (state run institutions) in favor of more community-based programs and services like those at Eggleston. And while this is positive, providers have struggled to keep pace due to lack of funding and overwhelming need.

Last year, Eggleston launched its first-ever major campaign, Building the Future. This $2.7M campaign is expanding and enhancing services for two key projects:

  • A new facility for Brain Injury Services and the Warrior Bridge Veterans program
  • Seed funding to expand residential services with the building of an affordable, supportive apartment community in Norfolk.
