Engaging the Community

Raising money for others, celebrating holidays, and celebrating each other: these are the things that we commemorate here at The Home. Spend some time on our page and take a look at the special events we emphasize at The Virginia Home.


March 2019: Actor and philanthropist Gary Sinise visited with residents the afternoon before he spoke at our 9th Annual Stories of Courage & Grace event.  Residents surprised him with an extraordinary gift for his Gary Sinise Foundation raised through their Aquathon.  The foundation’s mission is to serve and honor our nation’s defenders, veterans, first responders, their families and those in need by creating and supporting unique programs that entertain, educate, inspire, strengthen and build communities.

April 2019:  The Virginia Home received the 2019 Excellence in Virginia Government Award for Community Enhancement from Virginia Commonwealth University’s Wilder School of Government and Public Affairs. This award celebrates the accomplishments of Virginians who have made contributions to the practice of government and to the well-being of our communities and citizens.  Robert A. Crouse, President & CEO of The Home (front row, third from left) accepted the award on behalf of the organization.  Click photo to see video created by the School and shared with guests.
