Lucy Corr Foundation was established in 2001 to address certain needs in the county by supporting Lucy Corr in providing carefully designed housing, meals, transportation, opportunities for socialization, lifelong learning and community engagement for independent seniors as well as for those requiring assistance in their daily lives.   Since we serve persons with varying needs on a single campus including a mix of individual homes and apartments with a community center and health center, we can effectively provide a wide range of services to enhance the lives of those in our service. These services and support enable our seniors to stay independent and not have to rely on volunteers, friends or family when they are in need. Currently, Lucy Corr Health Care Center, with the help of its staff and community volunteers, serves over 1000 seniors and their family members on an annual basis and provides over $2,000,000 in charitable assistance each year. As Chesterfield begins to realize the impact of the fastest growing population of seniors in the Central Virginia region, we wish to do our part to help seniors in our area by in increasing the scope of services we provide and the number of seniors served by our organization.

Lucy Corr Foundation supports Lucy Corr (LC) in providing benevolent care of more than $2,000,000 to its residents. Altria Companies Employees Community Fund (ACECF) provided $40,000 for a conversion van in 2016 to support the disabled residents for out patient appointments who otherwise had to depend on unreliable public transportation.  In 2017, ACECF provided $11,333 to provide "Linked Senior" technology to all residents of LC.
Budget $200,000.00
Free dental care, including a dental coordinator funded by the Jenkins Foundation, is provided to Lucy Corr residents through donations from the Foundation.  LCF has expanded to serve under and uninsured seniors in the community.  The Foundation provided more than $245,000 in oral health services in 2017 and in early 2018 reached the $1 million mark in services provided.  Instrumental in the success of the clinic is VCU School of Dentistry (dental and hygiene programs) and 17 volunteer dentists from the community.   The Foundation raised $95,000 in six months so that the clinic could be modernized in the summer of 2012.  The Mary Morton Parsons Foundation, Chesterfield Board of Supervisors, Richmond Memorial Health Foundation, the John Randolph Foundation, South Richmond Rotary and Lucy Corr Foundation contributed to the modernization.

Volunteer dentists in one year increased from one to seven and in 2017 numbers 17.  VCU dental hygiene students serve the clinic two days a week, and VCU dental students began working in the clinic four days a month beginning in the fall of 2013. 
Long Term Success
Since 2012, improved oral health care in the geriatric population in the Richmond region which will result in improved in overall good health. 
Funding for scholarships to assist families with adult day care services is needed.  This funding makes attendance possible for those families who would otherwise have to provide care giving alone.  Funding activities in the center such as daily exercise, sensory stimulation, art and music therapy, and socialization is needed.  
Budget $218,400.00
Programs to enrich residents' lives include art therapy, speakers bureau on historical topics, chaplaincy program, music programs, and recreational programs. The Lamb Center for Healing Arts is a significant partner in providing music art therapy and Healing Sounds provides music therapy.   In 2017, ACECF funded a technology initiative, Linked Senior,  to include kiosks, ipads, and monitors to provide 24/7 unlimited access to entertainment, education, spiritual and intellectual content.  The platform is tailored for seniors to provide the tools and resources to help seniors along the path to independence.   There are 50 residents who are "abandoned" because they have no family support or have outlived their family.  Basic items are needed to support these residents and during the holidays a Go Fund Me initiative raised $5000 for these residents at LC in 2016 and 2017. 
Budget $15,000.00
Through the Geriatric Training and Education Fund of the Virginia Center on Aging, Lucy Corr Foundation is implementing a program of oral health care training of direct care providers and health care professionals and has been funded for three years.   
Population Served Other Named Groups

CEO/ED/Board Comments

The future will bring exponential changes in the population of seniors. Globally,65+ world population was 516 million in 2009, and it is projected to triple by 2050 to 1.53 billion. The oldest segment of our population, those 85+, will increase five fold from 40 million to 219 million. Chesterfield has the fastest growing population of seniors in the Central Virginia Region. The current population of Chesterfield County is 316,000, and the current 65+ is about 10% of the total population which closely mirrors state and national trends. However, by 2020 the 65+ population in Chesterfield will increase by 80% and by 2030 it will increase by 160% according to Chesterfield County demographers. The time for community action is now. As a community we must plan and provide appropriate and affordable housing along with coordination of services to meet what will be a monumental task in providing support for the age wave that is upon us. Lucy Corr  has a 50 year reputation as a leader in senior housing and services and our visionary leadership is dedicated to being a community partner in this endeavor to support our elderly, no matter their financial resources.   Additionally, Lucy Corr provides a free Dental Clinic through funding received by Lucy Corr Foundation and educational materials, and supplies to assist caretakers in providing daily oral hygiene are available.   Altria Companies Employees Community Fund  (ACECF) has supported the chaplaincy program at LC, art and music programs in the adult day center, a web-based technology program "Linked Senior," a conversion van to transport disabled residents to doctor appointments and dental equipment.  Altria employees have also sponsored a beautification day in the fall of 2017 at Lucy Corr, improving the entrance gardens of the Health Care Center.
