Volunteers showed up and dug in at the Eggleston Garden Center’s Urban Farm on Saturday as we began the great work of building our rainwater catchment system. We received a RetainYourRain grant from the City of Norfolk and encourage others to consider this opportunity to support water conservation and protecting our environment. How did you celebrate Earth Day?
Contact our Garden Center at 757-510-5651 to find out how you can become a member and receive fresh vegetables from the garden. Thanks again to everyone that came out to help or shared the information with others!
On April 12, 2018, we hosted a Grand Opening Ceremony at the Military location to announce and celebrate our recent partnership with Cox Communications! Eggleston employees will be refurbishing remotes for national customers. Over the past year, we’ve been preparing space in our Business Services Department. After completing a testing phase, we are pleased to use this opportunity to continue growing employment opportunities for adults with disabilities right here in Hampton Roads!
There has been a great deal of change and growth since Tasha Jones became Vice President of Residential Services. As the spring weather teeters its way to us, our residential managers have literally begun opening windows in the homes of our Eggleston residents and creating the breath of fresh air that has been missing. Eggleston provides residential services throughout the Hampton Roads region, and the managers in our Residential Services Department have taken teamwork to a new level, supporting one another, working together, and seeking new and innovative ways to keep good attitudes when the days are rough.
There’s a lot of work to be done, and it must be done well. There is no compromise on the expectation of a high level of quality of service, compliance and care that comes with providing services to individuals 24 hours a day, seven days a week, weekends and holidays included. The residential team sets the bar high and reminds us as Henry Ford has said, “If everyone is moving forward together, then success takes care of itself.”
