Help Fund Generators For Group Homes GOAL MET!
Following Hurricane Matthew in 2016 and Hurricane Irma in 2017, sufficient funds were raised to purchase hardwired generators and propane tanks for our group homes. Following permits and preparations, each generator was installed with transfer switches allowing the generators to turn on automatically when the power goes out. This now 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 those in our care.

Furniture Replacement Fundraiser GOAL MET!
For National Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month (March 2017), Duvall Homes 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 from regular wear-and-tear, so do the living and educational spaces used by those in our care. Various denominations of $35/chair were donated; enough was raised to furnish all of Adult Day Training with new armed chairs.

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.
