August 30, 2019 – As Hurricane Dorian heads toward Florida, each of Duvall’s Group Homes in Volusia County has taken the necessary steps to update their personal shelter plans, which are in place all year round, including access to generator power. Staff will continue to provide the professional care and services essential to securing the safety and protection of all residents of Duvall Homes. We will continue to monitor Hurricane Dorian and encourage friends and family to stay updated by referring to the National Hurricane Center at NHC.NOAA.gov/#Dorian and local authorities.
September 7, 2018 – As we enter the peak of hurricane season, we are once again reminded of the generosity and care of our families and community. Together, they helped to provide the much-needed support to obtain and install automatic generators at our group homes this past year.
“Thanks to our parents, families and community, we now have peace of mind that we can maintain power for refrigeration, laundry and lighting. Maintaining our group homes at a comfortable temperature can help us avoid serious problems,” said Marsha Shankleton, Duvall’s Chief Operating Officer.
We also send an extended thank you to the dedicated staff at Duvall Homes. Our professionally trained team of caregivers ensures that each of Duvall’s Group Homes maintains a heightened level of disaster preparedness throughout the year due to the fragility of those in our care. #TheDuvallDifference
