History

A safe space for older adults since 1976

Circle Center Adult Day Services was founded in 1976 by five Richmond Fan District Churches: Cathedral of the Sacred Heart, First English Lutheran Church, Grace Covenant Presbyterian, St. James’s Episcopal and St. John’s United Church of Christ. At that time, the Center had five participants and two employees.

Circle Center’s mission grew as more families learned of the benefits of adult day. With that growth, we moved into our 20,000+ square foot building in 2009. Today, we have an average of 60 participants per day and a multi-disciplinary staff of 28.

Our mission has remained steadfast since the beginning – to be a compassionate, enriching, and safe place for older adults to stay active, learn new things, and enjoy life. And at the same time, provide support and respite for their caregivers.
