At Home in Alexandria (AHA) was formed in late 2008 by Alexandrians who saw the need to give Alexandria residents 55 and older an option to remain in their homes as they age. AHA is based on the “village” concept — a local not-for-profit group that supports the functional, emotional, social, and health care needs of older adults so they may live independently in the community in which they have established roots. AHA was incorporated in January 2009 as a fee-based 501 (c) (3) organization governed by a volunteer board of directors and recognized as a Virginia charitable fundraising organization.
