Welcome to LeadingAge Virginia

LeadingAge Virginia (formerly the Virginia Association of Nonprofit Homes for the Aging or "VANHA") is a statewide organization of not-for-profit retirement housing communities, assisted living communities, nursing homes, continuing care retirement communities/life plan communities, adult day services providers, and other organizations serving Virginia's senior residents.

Our membership base also includes business organizations providing a diverse array of products and services intended for the aging services industry. 

Leadership Academy Launches

LeadingAge DC, Delaware, Maryland and Virginia are joining together to create a joint Leadership Academy to cultivate future leaders in our field. Modeled after the LeadingAge Leadership Academy and many of our other state partners, this year long program will kick off in February 2017 and immerse participants in leadership theory and practice. With focus on collaboration, advocacy, self-reflection, work-life balance and innovation, fellows will explore how these pillars are working in member communities across the Mid-Atlantic region. They will also spend time with area leaders in our field to understand their path to leadership.
