The Virginia Beach Community Trust
...serving Virginia Beach families since 1982.


The Virginia Beach Community Trust is a special needs trust. It enables families to financially plan for a disabled relative's future by providing funds from a family estate. This provides peace of mind for many parents and siblings, knowing that their family member will be cared for after they have passed. Trust amounts vary and are intended for families with modest incomes.

The trust is managed by a board of trustees composed of five volunteer members. The Virginia Beach Department of Human Services, a city agency, supports the trust. It is responsible for publicly funded programs that serve individuals with mental illnesses and developmental disabilities.
