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.

Whale of a treat

Ironfish delights with a variety of tasty catches

I was overjoyed to head back for another meal at Ironfish by Pescados, considered the Best New Restaurant in 2011 by both the Richmond Times Dispatch and Richmond Magazine. I agree whole-heartedly with their ratings. Since I first visited the restaurant for my birthday in January, I was waiting for the perfect special occasion to return. I couldn’t wait another year, obviously.

Run by the same restaurateurs as Pescados Latin Caribbean Seafood in Midlothian and Eat in Oregon Hill, Ironfish offers the same unique dishes and top-level customer service. > Read more.
