Community Accountability Program

Enhancing the Lives of Older Adults Throughout Northern Virginia

Goodwin House Staff & Residents Volunteer with Senior Services of Alexandria to deliver Meals on Wheels in June, 2018.

Goodwin House Incorporated’s vision is to expand the places and ways we serve older adults. This vision extends beyond our residents and members and into the broader Northern Virginia Region through the leadership of our Community Accountability Committee and hundreds of residents and employee volunteers that donate their time, talent and treasure to enhance the lives of thousands of older adults.

The Committee’s goal is to grow and advance resources for older adults across six aspects of safe, healthy and fulfilling living that relate directly to our own charitable purpose. We do this through our own programs and in partnership with other not-for-profit organizations and government agencies to expand the reach of these resources to even more older adults.

  1. Charitable Care
    Goodwin House has a Fellowship Program that provides financial assistance for monthly fees, entry fees and incidental fees and provides delivery of uncompensated services under the Medicaid program.
  2. Supporting Spirituality
    Goodwin House is one of only a few retirement communities that has a Clinical Pastoral Education Program.
  3. Supporting Creativity
    Goodwin House supports programs that foster a culture of creativity, generate lifelong learning and celebrate artistic endeavors.
  4. Successful Aging
    Goodwin House is the management agent for The Lewinsville Residences providing low-income housing to older adults in Northern Virginia and is a founding member of the Northern Virginia Falls Prevention Alliance.
  5. Caring for our Neighbors
    Goodwin House supports more than 40 local not-for-profit organizations with a focus on older adults and their needs and we open up our Life Plan Communities for events hosted by other not-for-profit organizations and government agencies.
  6. Leadership Development
    Goodwin House grows and deepens the pool of management and employees who serve seniors through academic internships, hospital and nursing program partnerships, leadership in state and national associations, and the GHI Emerging Leaders Program.
