Langley Federal Credit Union presented a check in the amount of $10,000 to the Colonial Heritage Community Foundation (CHCF) for support of their Innovative Senior Champions Program (ISCP). The donation allows the CHCF to develop the adult day services program and related services for the aging population in the Greater Williamsburg area. The ISCP would include areas such as art, music therapy, therapeutic gardening and health and wellness.
"The Colonial Heritage Community Foundation is grateful for Langley Federal Credit Union's support for the Innovative Senior Champions Program," said Executive Director Dick Boyden. "The success of this pilot program will establish the blueprint for developing adult day service programs for seniors throughout the greater Williamsburg community."
Virginia has approximately 837,000 veterans. In Hampton Roads, every one in five persons is a veteran. Some even have served in WWII, yet are in need of programs and services to support their health and well-being. In addition, the respite provided by the program, allows the family caregiver an opportunity to preserve their health as well. The coalition of two local churches, CHCF and Langley FCU is a commitment to the Williamsburg community to enhance the quality of life for older adults, retirees and veterans.
