The Virginia Home is a private, nonprofit 130-bed facility providing nursing, therapeutic and residential care to adult Virginians with irreversible physical disabilities.  The Home exists to provide compassionate, professional care and to ensure that the lifelong comfort and security of these individuals will never be compromised, regardless of ability to pay.  The staff develops and seeks to improve the physical, social and emotional lives of those living with a severe disabling condition, helping them to live active, meaningful lives.


1.   In spite of reduced or static operating revenue The Virginia Home has continued to provide superior care to its 130 residents. There have been no reductions to staffing or elimination/reduction to any resident programs, even in the face of an uncertain economic climate, and status of Medicaid, our primary source of revenue.
2.   Expansion of our Quality Assurance program has had a direct and positive effect on the health and care of our residents. Every issue pertaining to a resident is documented and followed through to its successful conclusion.   The net result of this has been a decrease in nosocomial infection, falls, and many other negative indicators.

3.   Through a cooperative effort with the VCU School of Dentistry we have expanded the provision of preventive dental health care to all residents. Each Friday students from the school come to The Virginia Home where they perform cleanings, examinations, and other prophylactic dental services. This has had a direct impact on the health of our residents.


 1.   To increase donations to The Home. As government sources of revenue remain frozen and investment markets recover slowly, our dependence on contributed funds will increase. We will need to explore all avenues of giving in hopes of making connections with willing donors.
2.   To work with organizations fulfilling a similar mission to identify best practices and to work together on mutually beneficial projects. To date, four organizations located outside of Virginia have joined in this effort.
3.   To create a video to be used for educational and public relations purposes so that more people including policy makers can learn of the unique service provided by The Virginia Home.
1.   To close the gap between operating revenues and expenses. Currently, The Virginia Home provides more than $8 million of care that is not reimbursed. This level of operating loss will be difficult to sustain without raising Endowment spending limits to unacceptable levels. New donations will be necessary to help bridge this gap without compromising programs that provide a direct benefit to our residents.  A one-time angel gift to could be transformative for The Virginia Home. 

2.    Refurbishment of two of four elevators within the facility. These elevators were last renovated in 1998. Many of the parts and controls have become obsolete. It will be necessary to substantially update this equipment to avoid significant down time later. Virtually all of our 130 residents are dependent on the elevators to get from floor to floor in this seven story facility. Estimated cost - $50,000.
3.   Production of a video chronicling the services provided by The Virginia Home. There is an opportunity for an in-kind gift from individuals or companies with expertise in television/video production or others who would like to fund such a project. Estimated cost - $10,000 - $15,000.
4.   To identify a public relations/marketing firm willing to provide advice and services relative to media relations, website, image and branding, and marketing the services of The Home.
Born into a prominent Virginia family, Mary Tinsley Greenhow was just a teenager when she fell from a horse in the mid-1800s.  The split second catch of her horse's hoof on a wooden bridge left the young woman with a paralyzing back injury from which she would never recover. 
Miss Greenhow was fortunate, in one sense, to have a family able to provide long-term care for her.  She soon realized that not everyone was so lucky, and over the years, became increasingly concerned for people less fortunate and more seriously disabled than herself.  Mary envisoned a place where people with physical disabilities could receive the care and companionship they needed and where their security and welfare would never be compromised, for the rest of their lives.
Through her dedication and perseverance, The Virginia Home for Incurables was chartered and opened on March 1, 1894.  Since then, The Home has undergone three changes of locale, one name change, several expansions and numerous improvements.
Today, Miss Greenhow's legacy is a modern thriving facility - home to 130 men and women from every corner of the Commonwealth.  More than a century after its inception, The Home remains the only facility of its kind in Virginia, a unique model for residential care of adults with disabilities.
CEO Statement

The Virginia Home is in the unique position of being the only provider of long term care services to persons with physical disabilities in Virginia. While technological and other advances make it possible for many to continue to live in their family residence, these individuals often live in isolation. Their physical care needs can be met in the home, but because of the extreme physical challenges they face, they have limited access to the community. The Virginia Home is a community within a community. Demand for our service remains very high with average waits for admission measured in years. Residents here have opportunities for travel, education; employment and socialization very much like members of the general public. The Home enables them to live fulfilling lives in an uplifting and empowering environment.

Organization Comments
The investment amounts that reconcile financial statement (GAAP) income to 990 income arise from differing accounting and  reporting rules for tax versus financial statement reporting. 

Under GAAP rules, investments that are classified as “alternative” investments must be accounted for under the equity method of accounting.  The Home has investments of this type.  Accordingly, any unrealized gains or losses from change in market value must be recorded as income or loss on the Statement of Operations.  Under tax reporting, though, these unrealized gains or losses are not reflected in income reported on the 990.  As a result, the loss of $4,819,572 during FY 2008 was added back to GAAP income on the 990 and the gain of $1,774,087 was subtracted from GAAP income on the 990.
Investment assets whose market value has been below acquisition value (cost) for 12 months prior to the reporting date (fiscal year end) are by GAAP definition “other than temporarily impaired(OTTI”).  Accordingly, the difference between market value and cost at the reporting date must be included on the Statement of Operations as a loss.  These amounts , though, are unrealized losses and are not reflected in 990 income amounts.  We had OTTI declines of $598,209 in 2008.  These declines are therefore added back to GAAP income for 990 purposes.


The third type of reconciling item from GAAP reporting arises from assets that have been either temporarily or permanently restricted by donors.  Our investments include amounts that are donor restricted and a pro rata portion of investment income and losses is allocated to those temporarily and permanently restricted balances.  These allocated amounts are not included in income on our Statement of Operations.  Reporting of income for 990 purposes, though, does not recognize that distinction between restricted and unrestricted.  Accordingly, the amounts allocated to restricted assets must be added to GAAP income.  The amounts were $41,389 in 2008.
