Norfolk, Va. (December 14, 2016) – Senior Services of Southeastern Virginia received $12,500 from the National Lutheran Communities & Services (NLCS) Community Impact Council to pilot EnhanceFitness®, an evidence-based senior fitness program. The funds will cover costs for program licensure, certification training for a class instructor, and some equipment.

 

“We are grateful to NLCS Community Impact Council for this grant,” said Mona Burwell, Senior Services wellness program coordinator. “It will enhance our Chronic Disease Self-Management and Diabetes Self-Management programs by incorporating a physical fitness component.”

 

The grant given to Senior Services is one of 30 awarded by the Community Impact Program to grantees in Maryland, Virginia, District of Columbia, and Delaware who are serving aging adults. The Community Impact Program was established to enhance NLCS’ commitment to the greater community through working collaboratively with other organizations and continued efforts to enrich the lives of seniors. Based in Rockville, Maryland, NLCS is a not-for-profit, faith-based ministry of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America’s (ELCA) Delaware-Maryland, Metropolitan Washington, D.C., and Virginia Synods, serving people of all beliefs.
