A Sense of Purpose Drives the VBH Foundation
For Nearly 70 Years, We Have Remained Committed To Our Seniors
The VBH Foundation serves a very important mission: to support the work and ministry of LifeSpire of Virginia by raising funds to help our seniors enjoy a loving, welcoming community with quality care, security, and peace of mind through their lifetime. It is this mission and the spirit of its purpose and message that drives us to continuously grow and improve, so that we can better serve those who need us most.
You Are Helping to Improve Lives
You trust us to take our work seriously, and with your generosity over the years we have remained true to our mission. Residents, along with their families and friends, are among those who understand the value of knowing that their home is secure. They give regularly to support benevolence so others will have that same security.
It is only through the support of generous contributors that seniors who need help can stay in their LifeSpire home. In the words of the daughters of a Lakewood Resident:
“Our mother moved into Lakewood Manor in 2004. From the moment she arrived, she was welcomed by staff and neighbors who went out of their way to make her feel comfortable. She was so happy here and we were equally happy that she had the opportunity to be part of this remarkable community. Our father passed away unexpectedly when he was 57 years old and Mother was just 48, with three teenage girls at home. She joined the workforce to care for her family and as busy as she was, there was always time for her church. At this time in her life, we are sure she never imagined being able to live out her later years in a place like Lakewood Manor.
Without the generosity of the donors to the Benevolent Fund, she would not have been able to live here. This financial assistance allowed her to be surrounded by kind, caring, like-minded individuals in a warm and safe environment. Sadly, Mother passed away at 84 after only six years at Lakewood. But we are so grateful that her final years were such happy ones.
For those of you who give to the Benevolent Fund, we cannot thank you enough for making Lakewood available to people like our Mom. We will always be grateful. From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you.”
If you also understand why it is so important that our parents, grandparents, and friends can live with dignity, no matter what their social, spiritual, and physical needs are as they age, we would appreciate your support.
