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

Our Missions

  • To provide a warm and nurturing home for intellectually challenged adults through our Group Home. 

  • To operate the Thrift Shop which serves the needs of the broader community by offering quality merchandise at affordable prices. The Thrift Shop sells only donated items and provides most of the financial support for the Group Home.
