Potato Soup Foundation

Comforting as a Warm Bowl of Soup

When Dwayne Clark was a young boy, there was a time when he and his working mother had no money and no food. This forced them to live off potatoes, which they made into potato soup to last a week. This experience was life-changing for Dwayne and gave him the drive to create a thriving senior living company known as Aegis Living.

During this hardship week, Dwayne and his mother would try to avoid their desperate situation by dreaming about what Dwayne would be when he grew up. Dwayne was a dreamer with all kinds of grand ideas. But that week, his mother said something to him that would stick with him for the rest of his life, “Dwayne, no matter what you do, don’t ever forget where you came from, and don’t ever forget that you had to eat potato soup for a week. And when you have employees, don’t ever forgot to be there for your employees, and they will always be there for you.”

In keeping with that spirit, Dwayne and Aegis Living established the Potato Soup Foundation as a not-for-profit, tax-exempt organization with the principal purpose to help Aegis Living employees and their families in extreme times of need.

The Foundation has helped people with emergency medical treatment, emergency housing, funeral expenses and a variety of other crisis situations.
