Contribute to Funding Generators for all our Group Homes
Following Hurricane Matthew in 2016 and Hurricane Irma in 2017, efforts have been focused on raising funds to purchase hardwired generators and propane tanks for our group homes. Each generator would be installed with transfer switches allowing the generators to turn on automatically when the power goes out. This enables residents to remain in the comfort of their own homes and beds with sufficient lighting, air and food preservation, and allows Direct Support Professionals to perform essential duties that require power to fully care for your loved ones. If you’re interested in making a donation to make a difference in the lives of those in our care, please click on the Generator or click here, or contact Elizabeth Bhimjee at ebhimjee@DuvallHomes.org or by calling 386.734.2874 Ext. #102.

Furniture Replacement Fundraiser
For National Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month (March 2017), Duvall Homes has kicked off a Furniture Replacement Fundraiser with the focus of raising funds to replace worn chairs (indoor and outdoor) in the Opportunities Enrichment Center and aged furniture in some of our Group Homes.
Just the way your home or office requires new furnishings every once in a while from regular wear-and-tear, so do the living and educational spaces used by those in our care. Any donated amount is appreciated: $35 will buy one chair, $70 two, $140 four… a larger amount could replace a living room recliner or couch in a Group Home. Our goal is to reach $10,000.
In an effort to reach our goal for this essential furniture need, a 30-day “Chairs with Arms” drive ran during the month of May on Go Fund Me with a focus placed on raising at least $1750 of the $10,000 to purchase 50 chairs with arms.
To show our appreciation, anyone who makes a donation will have their name entered into a drawing for a special gift box of printed original works of art created by individuals with developmental disabilities in our care who participate in Duvall Homes’ Art…For Everyone Program, which takes place in our Opportunities Enrichment Center.
Donate online by clicking here. Donate by phone by calling 386.734.2874. Donate by mail by sending a check payable to Duvall Homes to P.O. Box 220036, Glenwood, FL 32722. Be sure to write Furniture Replacement Fundraiser on your check or in the “special instructions” memo when making a paypal donation. Thank you for your support and understanding of this need!
Ways to Give
DaVita Labs Beautifies Landscape
There are numerous ways to give and make an impact in the lives of others. Above, in 2014, 80 volunteers from DaVita Labs’ offices in DeLand and Ft. Lauderdale cleared brush, planted flower beds and shrubs, and added mulch to several acres surrounding five group homes. More than 900 plants were installed. DaVita also donated $3,000 toward the cost of the materials needed to enhance the group home properties.
