who we are
Shenandoah County SEARCH, Inc. (“SEARCH”) was established in August, 1978 by Preston and Vivian Poole, and others who were interested in the welfare of intellectually challenged citizens. SEARCH is a Section 501(c)3 non-profit corporation. Thus donations to SEARCH are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by applicable law.
SEARCH Continues to operate in memory of Vivian Poole, who dedicated 30 years of her life to this cause.
SEARCH is grateful for the visionary leadership of Sid and Betsy Price following the death of Vivian Poole. They helped put SEARCH on the road to success! Their generosity and vision provided SEARCH with the current Thrift Shop building. Care for our residents guided their vision
