EO has a 60-year history of developing programs that support and enhance communities across Southwest Virginia and beyond. We are passionate about this work and believe that between problems and potential lies endless opportunities. 

At EO, we use a cradle-to-career framework focusing on Education, Workforce Innovation, and Well-being. We prioritize data-informed solutions that leverage community listening and cross-sector convening to build innovative and sustainable system change. 

Our body of work focuses on upstream solutions that result in:

  • children learning and growing in healthy environments
  • employers and businesses running at their fullest potential
  • young families finding good jobs with livable wages right here at home.

It takes work, collaboration, and a passion for this region and its people to move from a bold idea to reality. Together, we can go far.
