Our founding nonprofit – Evergreen Life Services
The mission of Evergreen Life Services (ELS) is to serve, provide for and champion individuals with disabilities. ELS was established in 1959 and, for over 50 years as a non-profit organization, ELS has been advocating and making a positive difference in the lives of individuals with disabilities.
Evergreen’s primary mission of providing services and support to persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities easily carries over to the wounded warriors needing assistance with a healthy readjustment to civilian life. The feeling of self-worth, pride, and acceptance gained by becoming gainfully employed by our program contributes to a positive mental state of mind.
Evergreen Life Services proudly presents HEAVENDROPt, an innovative social enterprise that will help expand Evergreen’s mission worldwide. The HEAVENDROPt enterprise allows Evergreen to reduce its dependency on tax-based dollars and create an earned income stream while creating jobs and support for individuals with developmental and intellectual disabilities, sight and hearing challenges, veterans with disabilities, military families and across the United States.
Our HEAVENDROPt enterprise provides people with disabilities, wounded warriors and potentially their family members, with specific but transferable job training and employment opportunities in several areas. Being employed and working people with developmental and intellectual disabilities is a positive uplifting experience for all.
