Give Now Honor Tree - Honor someone with a gift to the VBH Foundation.
The Foundation’s team is grateful
for those who have gone before
and for those who care about them.
Seniors are an essential part of society. During their working years, they served in the military to protect the nation’s freedom, worked in service fields, owned businesses, educated and provided medical care, served the public in civic roles and volunteered their personal time to help others — all the while staying grounded in faith. As they age, they continue to hold invaluable knowledge, experience, perspective and wisdom that only the depth and breadth of life can give.
They gave the community strength to grow and succeed. They raised their families with love and care. Now they need help to continue living purposefully in a loving environment. That is why the VBH Foundation exists.
For More Than 70 Years, LifeSpire of Virginia Has Remained Committed To Seniors.
While LifeSpire’s communities have grown and changed over time, the mission to provide the best for seniors has not wavered. The VBH Foundation, through the generosity of loyal donors, is able to provide essential services and programs to enhance the lives of residents, no matter their level of care needs.
It is the act of providing essential services to those who can no longer provide them for themselves and includes:
- Pastoral Care
- Spiritual Programs
- Interfaith Dialog
- Safe, Secure Housing
- Nutritious Meals
- Fitness and Wellness Programs
- Rehabilitation Therapy
- Personal Care
- Skilled Nursing Care
- Volunteer Opportunities
- Intellectual Stimulation
- Lifelong Learning
- Cultural Enrichment
Benevolence also includes caring team members who treat residents as family members and go about their work with love and faith at their core. It is this mission and the spirit of its purpose that drives LifeSpire to continuously grow and improve, so that it can better serve those who need it most.
85% are women

55% are more than 90 years old
68% are cared for in assisted living, memory support or skilled nursing
Generous contributors make it possible for seniors to live purposefully in their LifeSpire home. In the words of the daughters of a LifeSpire resident:
“Without the generosity of the donors to the Benevolent Fund, our mother 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. 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 parents, grandparents and friends can live with dignity, no matter what their social, spiritual and physical needs are as they age, LifeSpire’s team would appreciate your support.
