Since 2006, Virginia Commerce Bank has supported CR’s mission by helping them
finance capital investments, such as vans with chair lifts and CR-owned homes
for residents. In addition to VCB providing CR with financial services and
cash donations, its employees have volunteered with CR to organize fundraisers
to benefit resident programs.

“Virginia Commerce Bank is dedicated to giving back to the communities we
serve, including support for organizations such as Community Residences that
make such a positive difference in the lives of individuals and families in
Northern Virginia,” said Peter A. Converse, President and CEO of Virginia
Commerce Bank. “We are honored to partner with Community Residences, providing
banking services and direct financial support. Community Residences is just
one example of how the VCB Foundation provides support for organizations to
make a difference in their communities.”
