The VNA is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing needed services for nearly a century in the communities we serve. We rely on the generous financial support of those who believe the services we provide are crucial to the well being of those most in need in our community.

“Thank you for the wonderful care you gave our mother, Anne. It wasn’t easy to get her to move to assisted living but once she arrived, she settled in. Your staff, especially several of her favorite aids, were always looking in on her and making her laugh.”
– Bob and Anne P.
