Evans & Chambers Technology (EC) is proud to continue supporting Homes For Our Troops (HFOT) and its mission of building and donating specially adapted homes nationwide for severely injured post-9/11 veterans to enable them to rebuild their lives. Last year EC supported HFOT at the Virginia Gold Cup and sponsored a networking event with the defense industry and other Washington, DC, organizations. On June 10th, we participated in the 2019 Camaraderie Classic Golf Tournament as a sponsor and were able to meet several veterans who have received a home from HFOT.
At the start of 2019, EC created the Technology And Community Connecting Hands (TACCH) program to partner with nonprofits as a way to help the less fortunate. We are excited to announce that we nominated Bright Beginnings,Inc, as our first partner in this program. Bright Beginnings is a nonprofit organization that provides quality child care, education, and support to families experiencing homelessness in Washington, DC. It operates child and family development centers that offer a bright start for homeless infants, toddlers, and preschoolers and their families. TACCH helps mothers and fathers learn real life skills, responsibility, and parent-child bonding by working in the classroom with their children.
On June 12th, EC attended the 2019 Champion for Children Award Ceremony, where our COO Andre Chambers was able to meet the executive director of Bright Beginnings, Dr. Marla Dean, as well as several of the parents who are partaking in the TACCH program. Throughout the evening there were special thanks to the community for allowing Bright Beginnings to be successful, success speeches from parents who have benefited from Bright Beginnings, and a wonderful performance from Jennifer Jenkins, an extremely talented violinist.
