Building for the Future: A Note from the CEO
Earlier this year Eggleston launched a capital campaign, making the renovation of it’s newest space possible. Thanks to the generosity of donors, the new flagship location in Norfolk is expanding and enhancing two programs that combined serve nearly 200 adults with disabilities in Hampton Roads each year. Formerly the Virginia Employment Commission, the new 18,000 square foot, two-story building houses Eggleston’s brain injury services and veteran services programs. The second floor provides much needed space for Eggleston staff.
In April, we celebrated our newest location with an outdoor ribbon-cutting ceremony and open house event. On behalf of us all at Eggleston, we would like to give special thanks to Taylor Construction for sponsoring the event; and to TowenBank Executive Chairman G. Robert Aston, Jr., City of Norfolk Mayor Kenneth Cooper Alexander, and Congressman Bobby Scott for helping to mark this milestone event with their kind remarks.
Below you will find pictures, videos, and further information about the newest location and the ribbon-cutting ceremony and open house.
Thank you for supporting Eggleston and being a part of our growth.
