A COMMUNITY OF SUPPORT, ENRICHMENT & FUN FOR OUR ALEXANDRIA NEIGHBORS AGES 55+

Volunteer

What would AHA do without its amazing volunteers?! Our organization offers an array of volunteer opportunities and a very flexible schedule, based on your availability. You’ll have the chance to work with some great folks. Come on board!

Donate

AHA is an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded locally by Alexandria citizens. We operate independently with no local, state or federal funding. Member dues cover 45% of our operational costs and we gratefully accept tax-deductible contributions to keep our service strong and vibrant.

AHA has LOTS of fun activities going on: walking club, cycling club, dinners out, lunches out, monthly guest speakers, happy hours, and so much more! Check out our upcoming events right here!

I have a military background and I consider myself to be ‘tough as nails!’ Someone like me doesn’t find it easy to ask for help. But, this past year, with a turn of events that my husband and I experienced, we had no choice but to rely on others. The AHA volunteers were absolutely fantastic.



- AHA member Susan

I’m fortunate to have a son, daughter-in-law and two young grandsons who live in the area. They help whenever they can. But there are times when I just don’t want to rely on them. It has been a source of great comfort to them that I have the AHA community to lean on for some extra help



- AHA member Helen

With AHA, we have found there is no “tired” in being retired! We enjoy the fun social and educational events, making new friends, lending support to others, and being part of the best way to ‘age in place’ in Alexandria.”



- AHA members Maggie and Barry

“We thought we would meet nice people, but we were not expecting the great friendships we have made. We love being part of an engaging, welcoming community. We will never leave.”



- AHA members Steve and Pam
