Lucy Corr Foundation was established in 2001 to address certain needs in the county by supporting Lucy Corr Village 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 Village, with the help of its staff and community volunteers, serves over 1000 seniors and their family members on an annual basis and provides over $4,000,000 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.

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 fivefold 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 45 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. Additionally, educational materials and supplies to assist caretakers in providing daily oral hygiene are available. Altria Employees Community Fund has supported the chaplaincy program at LC and art and music programs in the adult day center and provided a conversion van to transport disabled residents to doctor appointments.
