VALA Facts: VALA is a non-profit membership organization dedicated to providing advocacy, communication, education, and resources to the assisted living industry in Virginia. Formed in 1996, our members have chosen us to be the unified voice of assisted living in Virginia, and we are the official state affiliate of Argentum (formerly the Assisted Living Federation of America - ALFA).

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