Our History

VNA has seen a lot of changes since being founded by Mrs. W.R. Fringer and Mrs. Walter Forbes in 1910. Learn more about that history and how we have helped patients over the years.

Community Involvement

Make a Donation to VNA

VNA is always happy to receive charitable donations from patients, their families and members of the public. These donations help us improve services and offer our services to more patients.

Honor Your Caregiver

We love hearing from our patients and their families when they’ve received outstanding care. You can make a donation in the name of our caregiver to ensure others receive the same level of care.
