Aegis Living – We’re the People Who Make Life Better
At Aegis Living giving back to others reflects our commitment to our employees, residents and community at large. We dedicate time and financial resources to make their lives better.
Just a few of the valuable organizations Aegis Living and its employees are proud to support.
The vital work of the Association can make the difference now and in the future. Aegis Living continues to value this relationship and participate in their mission when and where possible.
The home office at Aegis Living resembles a department store when during the course of a day staff visit and "shop" for items donated and purchased by the company for them. Hundreds of Aegis Living employees are provided with free clothing, toys and new shoes during the holiday season when the need seems so strong.
Potato Soup Foundation
Dwayne Clark and Aegis Living established the Potato Soup Foundation with the principle purpose to help Aegis staff in extreme times of need. The foundation has helped people with emergency medical treatment, emergency housing, funeral expenses and variety of other crisis situations. We believe in supporting our employees and families as much as possible especially in their time of need.
We understand that there are many good people who are only a paycheck away from being homeless and we are dedicated to helping. FareStart is a job training and placement program for homeless and disadvantaged individuals. Over the past 19 years, FareStart has provided opportunities for over 2,000 people to transform their lives.
We have found Rainier Scholars to be an incredible opportunity to send young, bright, promising kids to an educationally rich environment. As a young person Dwayne Clark, Founder and CEO of Aegis Living, had very little means, but was fortunate to have been afforded a private school scholarship through his family's church. That education turned his life around and led him to believe in himself and the things that he could accomplish. We are extremely honored partner with Rainier Scholars and grow great leaders for our future.
