Community Engagement

Goodwin Living in the Larger Community

At Goodwin Living, we believe our team members, residents, members and patients are part of a village. For our own community to thrive, we must reach outside of ourselves, into the larger community and act as advocates for residents and all aging adults.

Wherever and whenever we can, the Goodwin Living team works to improve the spiritual, creative, financial and health experiences for those ages 55 and better. We pursue these efforts through Goodwin Living activities, such as our Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) program, and partnerships with non-profit and civic organizations, as well as government entities.

Goodwin Living supports more than 50 local not-for-profit organizations providing services for older adults, and we offer our facilities to other organizations and government agencies for events.

  • Our team members donate over 20,000 hours annually to not-for-profit organizations in Northern Virginia.
  • Our residents and members give their time and talents to tutor students and mentor young adults. They also donate food, clothing and art to support other not-for-profit organizations.
  • We provide over 15,000 hours of clinical education annually to students working in health care services for older adults.
  • Our efforts add up to $1,225,131 worth of time, talent and resources donated to promoting safe, healthy and fulfilling living for older adults across Northern Virginia.

Our Partners

We are proud to partner with some terrific organizations in our communities. Check out our partnerships below.

Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE)

Goodwin Living is among only seven senior living communities in the U.S. that offer a professional Clinical Pastoral Education Program for those interested in developing their skills in pastoral ministry and chaplaincy.

Creative Engagement at Goodwin Living

Goodwin Living supports programs in order to foster a culture of creativity and lifelong learning. We celebrate artistic endeavors for residents and citizens of the larger community with internal art programs, exhibitions and trips to local museums.

Health Programs and Partnerships

We offer state-of-the art health care at Goodwin Living, but we also work hard to grow and deepen the pool of management and health care professionals who serve seniors. We offer academic internships, hospital and nursing program partnerships, leadership in state and national associations, and the Goodwin Living Emerging Leaders Program.

Programs we are most proud of include our dementia training and support initiatives. Every member of our team has participated in Dementia Friends information sessions. We also hold annual training sessions for all memory care employees to upgrade their skills and increase their knowledge by providing the latest information, training technology and science about Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. Equally important, Goodwin Living takes our knowledge and expertise out into the greater communities of Alexandria, Arlington and Fairfax to help make them dementia-friendly communities. Why? Because it is our mission to serve and uplift all seniors.

If you’d like to know more about how we live our mission and values through our community efforts, we hope you’ll call or visit us.
