SOAR365

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.

Virginia Dental Association Foundation

The VDA Foundation is passionate about dental care and oral health because they profoundly affect the well-being and quality of life of individuals and communities. However, for many people, financial realities leave them with no hope of securing care. That is why our Foundation exists — to help underserved Virginians get the dental services they need. As the charitable and outreach arm of the Virginia Dental Association, the Virginia Dental Association Foundation (VDAF) garners the resources of dental professionals and the community at large to offer programs that serve over 7,500 people annually.

Oral health influences all aspects of our lives -- overall health, appearance, and even employment. Studies repeatedly show that poor oral health and diseases of the mouth can lead to other serious concerns, including diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Unfortunately, thousands of people experience pain, difficulty chewing, low self-esteem and other complications resulting from oral disease, simply because they lack resources to access dental care. Founded in 1996, the VDAF is a 501(c)3 nonprofit that provides access to dental care for underserved Virginians. It accomplishes this mission through its three nationally-recognized programs -- Mission of Mercy, Donated Dental Services, and Give Kids A Smile.

The first class honors legends of playing, teaching, professionalism and Rules of Golf knowledge. The induction of the Inaugural Class will spur on a new tradition: Honoring the rich history of golf in the Commonwealth on a yearly basis, with new honorees and a chance to celebrate tremendous memories while looking toward the future.
