We invite you to explore our web-site to find out more about the Sarah Bonwell Hudgins Foundation and our efforts to enhance the lives of our special population. The Sarah Bonwell Hudgins Foundation was chartered in 1966 as a tax-exempt, non-profit corporation. Its mission is the development and maintenance of its 38+ acre campus, with 13 buildings leased to appropriate providers who serve people with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities. In addition to enhancing the lives of people with disabilities, the Foundation's goals include fund solicitation and the awarding of grants, as well as education and research.

Two of the earliest benefactors to the Sarah Bonwell Hudgins Center were Mr. and Mrs. Chester Carlson who became interested in our work in 1963. Mr. Carlson was the inventor of the xerography process. We know the product today as Xerox.

The Center is named after Dorris Carlson's mother, Sarah Bonwell Hudgins. From this beginning and with the continued support of individuals and organizations, the public Sarah Bonwell Hudgins Foundation remains privately funded.

Caryl Johnson, the Interim Executive Director of the Sarah Bonwell Hudgins Foundation, says, “Mobility takes on many forms and it’s up to us to celebrate everyone’s Unique-Ability.” We look forward to celebrating with you at the 1st Annual “Unique-Ability” 1k/5k Fun Run/Walk.
