“You can’t imagine how happy, how satisfied I am to know that my brother is doing exactly what he should be doing with the exact people I would choose to support him at this exact time.  Eddie is calmer than I’ve seen him in years and clearly has embraced his new digs.

“We say thank Duvall Homes for permitting us to be part of their family and give support to their projects. They are trustworthy, competent stewards of the funds they receive.”


Jeanne & Dave Bedell
Parents of Duvall Resident

“Duvall Homes’ 2017 Inspiration Gala, with Johnny Wild and the Delights playing ‘our music’, was the best fundraiser ever! We’re inspired by the heroic efforts of the Duvall staff during Hurricane Irma and the patient and loving care they give residents every day.”


Bobbi Baugh
Mixed Media Artist

“I’M INspired by art that serves as a window into what is not always easily seen in a person. For every artmaker, the work is a window to inner thoughts and emotions.  Art reveals passions, interests and sensitivities. This is surely true of Duvall’s artists too. And I am inspired by a place that recognizes the importance of self-expression for all people and that makes this possible.”

Tim Nelson
ADT Supervisor

“Over the years, I’ve seen so many individuals make gains – big and small – but all notable. From mastering a new skill instead of being isolated, to developing new interests instead of being fearful. It’s inspiring to know those gains were made by curriculum they participate in daily and inspiring to see the impact it has on their lives and the lives of their families.”
