Williamsburg, Virginia (PressExposure) September 16, 2009 -- Colonial Heritage, Lennarâs active adult community in James City County recently established the Colonial Heritage Community Foundation (CHCF) to support charitable causes and neighborhood efforts within Colonial Heritage and the surrounding area.
Joan Bender, Colonial Heritage resident and founder of the Colonial Heritage Neighbor To Neighbor Program and Alzheimer Caregivers Support Group said the CHCF is critical to the communityâs future programs.
âWe are very excited about the development, implementation and future of the Colonial Heritage Community Foundation and grateful to Lennar for helping to support it,â said Joan Bender. âThe CHCF plays a pivotal role to build community and enrich the quality of life for all residents. The Foundationâs age-friendly philosophy will designate and sponsor programs that provide the information, access and motivation people need to become and stay active.â
In addition to financially supporting humanitarian groups such as the Alzheimerâs Association, Senior Services Coalition and Neighbor To Neighbor, the Foundation also promotes intergenerational community programs to demonstrate that all individuals can participate in life as fully as possible.
âEvaluation and measurement tools enable the programs to adapt and grow in ways that are evidence-based and help individuals. Areas such as the economic contributions and challenges of family care giving responsibilities are supported with innovative approaches,â Bender said.
