Villa’s programs assist thousands


Isaac had had difficulty controlling his anger ever since he was in kindergarten. When classroom outbursts, school suspensions and hospital visits became routine, his mother, Lachelle, had no choice but to stop working and care for him full time.

Isaac’s aggression came from a diagnosed mental illness. Lachelle had worked for years in the medical field as a triage nurse, but had no idea of where to turn to get her son the treatment he needed. Henrico County Mental Health and Developmental Services then referred Isaac to the Therapeutic Day Treatment program at St. Joseph’s Villa.

After about a year in the program, Lachelle saw a huge turnaround in Isaac’s behavior. > Read more.

‘Monsters U’ proves itself as family gem


Anyone who has seen "Animal House," "Revenge of the Nerds," or any of the countless retreads and spoofs they spawned will surely find something familiar in "Monsters University." Pixar's latest comes from the very same mold, but has been cast in brighter, cuter colors. Mike Wazowski and James P. Sullivan, the green-and-blue leads of 2001's "Monsters, Inc." (Billy Crystal and John Goodman, respectively) are freshmen at the titular university and face the typical trials and tribulations one would find in any college comedy. Arrogant fraternity jocks, a tough-as-nails dean and a campus-wide scare-off must all be overcome if Mike and Sully are to become the best of friends and blossom into the heroes we know from the original film. > Read more.
