Our History

From the very beginning, we at SOAR365 have been practical dreamers. We refused to accept the accepted way of doing things.

Our programs and services have always been designed for individuals and families who are coping with the daily real world challenges of living with a disability. To that end, we’ve continually added more ambitious and thoughtful programs over the past 65 years. And today our services have a profound impact on more than 1,300 people and their families.

We’ve also created a thriving Business Solutions division where 80% of individuals have a disability. We do a wide variety of work—from janitorial to digital imaging—for customers that include the U.S. Government, the Commonwealth of Virginia, huge corporations, and smaller local companies. The funds generated from Business Solutions fund a great deal of the work we do here. The rest comes from generous donors. 

Everyone who works or volunteers here shares this simple belief: When someone comes through our doors—whether they’re newborn babies, teens, adults or seniors—we work hard to understand their needs, desires, dreams and goals. We find ways to provide every individual and his or family the comprehensive services that work best. 

So far, our commitment has worked out great for so many people. But we’re always looking for ways to do more. Join us. And we can go higher… together.
