Wish List

El Valor requires many items on an ongoing basis to keep our Community Independent Living Arrangement (CILA) homes for adults with disabilities and our Head Start classrooms running smoothly. Donations are essential for maintaining the supplies that help make our individuals comfortable in their homes and ensure our students receive a quality education.

On your next shopping trip, please consider picking up an item or two from our wish list! Items can be dropped off at the Main Office Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.!
