Henrico witnesses a boom in high-end housing
Henrico County has seen a surge in the high-end housing market, with about 100 homes priced at more than $750,000 being bought or built in the last year, specifically in the Three Chopt and Tuckahoe magisterial districts.

HHHunt, a home developer based in Henrico, sold multiple homes in its new Ellington Woods community for more than $1 million recently, a trend that George Moore, vice president of development for HHHunt Communities, believes isn’t going to stop any time soon.

“When you talk about higher-priced homes, these areas are very desirable,” Moore said. “The schools in this area of Henrico County are ranked some of the highest in the state of Virginia; there is quality development, and people are looking for attractive communities with landscaping, high end amenities and the nearby services.” > Read more.

Tour empowers girls with fun, education

‘Secret Keeper Girl Crazy Hair’ event coming to Henrico Jan. 30
In a society in which many of the normalcies in tween culture focus on sexuality and promiscuity – and push young girls to grow up too fast – the Secret Keeper Girl Crazy Hair tour offers a fresh outlook on mother-daughter connectedness by teaching that being “crazy” can mean many different things.

A “Secret Keeper girl” embraces modesty, loves herself and others, feels comfortable sharing with Mom, and knows she is a masterpiece of God. By introducing girls to this event, organizers hope that they will realize the true beauty that lies within them and be opened up to a world of positive role models. > Read more.

After-school program offers new support for autistic kids

After his continuous behavioral issues at school and a lack of understanding about his autism, Henrico resident Robin Davis didn’t know where to turn to help her son, Matthew, 13. Sounds, smells and sights were overwhelming for him, other kids were making fun of him, teachers were frustrated, and so was Davis.

“If I forced him to go to school, he would’ve ended up in the juvenile system because his anxiety is so bad,” Davis said. “I needed to protect him and give him the best shot possible. Most people just don’t know how to work with kids with autism and they require a lot of time, patience and understanding, but school is too rushed.” > Read more.
