LOA’s Center for Health and Wellness opened in 2022, providing a much-needed new space next to our main office in Roanoke. The Center is the hub of LOA’s Nutrition Programs and the home of healthy aging activities and events. The building houses the headquarters for the Northwest Roanoke Meals on Wheels site, the Star City Diners Club, and LOA’s Nutrition Programs offices.

We need your support
Our goal is to raise $100,000 to pay for renovations to the Center and ensure program sustainability by freeing up future funds to be devoted to programs and services.
As the older population in our area grows, LOA is also growing to provide the critically needed services for healthy aging. During the next 10 years, 85% of our region’s population growth is projected to take place in the 65+ age group.
We’re continuing to grow and need your support to do so! We’re developing an outdoor walking path, landscaping with picnic tables, and an outdoor exercise area. This fitness area will be senior-focused, fully accessible, and offer equipment for strength, balance, and flexibility exercises.
Your gift to the LOA Center for Health and Wellness will ensure that programming and services vital to our older population will continue. Thank you for your commitment and support of older adults in our region!Make a gift
