Dear Friends,
Duvall Homes has been caring for people with developmental disabilities since 1945. For seventy years we have been nurturing independence and self-determination, offering a comprehensive range of services to help this fragile population achieve the fullest life possible. We work each and every day to enrich lives, to advocate for the under-served and to create awareness about those with special needs. As a landmark fixture in Central Florida for decades, we are proud to announce our 70th Anniversary to our community neighbors and business partners, and to the parents and guardians of our residents.

“The Next 70” will be an inspiring evening as we look back over the past seventy years, look forward with exciting announcements about our future, and pay special tribute to Daryl Tol, President/CEO of Florida Hospital Volusia/Flagler, with the “Alanson and Thelma Duvall Memorial Award for Outstanding Community Service”. We hope you will join in recognizing his contribution to Duvall Homes and to the community by helping us celebrate!

Whether you contribute through a table sponsorship or purchase an individual ticket, your support will enrich the lives of more than 100 developmentally disabled people living at Duvall Homes, along with 15-20 disabled community members who attend our Opportunities Training Program five days a week throughout the year. ALL participation is welcome, as generosity and involvement like yours helps strengthen our programs and services and allows us to meet the ever-changing, often critical needs of those in our care.

“The Next 70” offers an opportunity to improve the lives of others, while building your brand and exercising your CSR at the same time! Enjoy great food and fellowship, a network and information share, and lend your support to those most fragile in our community.

On behalf of Duvall Homes we extend our deepest thanks for your consideration. Your decision to get involved can make all the difference!

Duvall Sponsors DeLand Chamber After Hours

On February 19, 2015, DeLand Area Chamber of Commerce members and guests enjoyed a special evening of networking and art appreciation, while supporting the developmentally disabled at Stetson University’s Homer & Dolly Hand Art Center.

This collaborative exhibition showcased artistic accomplishments of world renowned figures, alongside lesser-known artists living in our community. Through the generosity of Stetson and the Hand Art Center, Duvall Home presented for the first works of art completed by disabled artists as part of its Art for Everyone program.
