Downtown Blacksburg, Inc. is proud to present our Non-Profit Member of the Month for March 2016-Warm Hearth Village.
Warm Hearth Village was founded in 1974 by Wybe and Marietje Kroontje, Dutch immigrants who wanted to give something back to the American people for liberating their country during WWII. They envisioned a community where seniors of all walks of life would come together in an environment of incomparable beauty and value and their vision and influence guide our plans and decisions still today.
We are the New River Valley’s only comprehensive, nonprofit retirement community and our mission further sets us apart as we are driven to serve seniors of all socioeconomic backgrounds through a wide range of choices in housing, services and care. The Warm Hearth Foundation aids in our ability to take care of seniors who do not have the means to pay for housing and health care. As an organization we constantly seek innovative approaches to care and services as well as new offerings to meet the changing needs of seniors over time.
Warm Hearth Village is currently home to more than 550 seniors in living options that include active adult, independent living (which includes 144 subsidized apartments for seniors on low, fixed incomes), assisted living, memory care, skilled nursing care, long-term nursing care and home health care. We are staffed with a team of dedicated professionals and a volunteer board of directors who are guided by a strong set of values that put residents first! The average tenure of our 11-person leadership team is an impressive 15 years.
Warm Hearth Village endeavors to be a good corporate partner and citizen by being actively engaged in the community around us. Our staff serves on the board of many community organizations such as The United Way, Good Samaritan Hospice, The Women’s Resource Center, The Agency on Aging, just to name a few. We give of our time in volunteerism and our support through partnerships and sponsorships. We are proud to be a part of Blacksburg and the New River Valley and equally proud to watch this community grow and thrive alongside us.
Nestled in Virginia’s historic New River Valley and the Blue Ridge Mountains, you’ll discover that Warm Hearth Village is a different kind of community. Visit our website for more information: http://www.warmhearth.org/
