Social Accountability

Social accountability is the extent to which a nonprofit organization responds to the needs of the community surrounding it. In 2020, the VBH Foundation provided nearly $1.2 million in financial support to residents who outlived their financial resources through no
fault of their own. LifeSpire’s home office and the Foundation gave 91 team member hours and $5,200 to various causes. Team member gifts included $34,131 to the Foundation’s four funds—benevolence, crisis, education and spiritual life.

The Culpeper donated donated nine team member hours and $2,448 to charitable causes and public interests in 2020.

The Chesapeake donated donated 15 team member hours, 1,775 resident hours and $14,479 to charitable causes and public interests in 2020.

The Glebe donated donated $1,300 to charitable causes and public interests in 2020.

Lakewood donated donated 128 team member hours, 1,329 resident hours and $27,420 to charitable causes and public interests in 2020.

Whether the contributions were clothing and school supplies to local elementary schools or offering meeting space to local organizations, LifeSpire team members and residents are proud to give back to the larger communities that support them. Organizations we supported this year include:
