Welcome to the Virginia Assisted Living Association (VALA)

The Virginia Assisted Living Association (VALA) is a non-profit membership organization dedicated to providing advocacy, communication, education, and resources for Virginia's assisted living industry.

Formed in 1996, VALA is the unified voice of assisted living in Virginia and the official state affiliate of the Assisted Living Federation of America (ALFA).

VALA's members represent the entire spectrum of the industry: providers of both non-profit and for-profit, and large and small assisted living communities. VALA also welcomes Industry Partners - companies, government agencies, and individuals that provide a service to, or have an interest in, assisted living in Virginia.
