For more than ten years, Ashby Ponds, an Erickson Living community in Ashburn, Va., has offered the gold standard in retirement living.

Ashby Ponds celebrated its Benevolent Care Fund campaign with a solar eclipse viewing party.

A tremendous sense of responsibility lies at the core of the Erickson Living mission: “We share our gifts to create communities that celebrate life.”

For experienced bargain shoppers, January is the hottest month of the year to find post-holiday, priced-to-sell items.

This year, Ashby Ponds will welcome more than a hundred new community members with the opening of its Birch Point and Cypress Ridge residence buildings.

This September, Ashby Ponds celebrated its nine-year anniversary. Since opening day, the sought-after Erickson Living community in Ashburn, Va., continues to grow at an unprecedented rate.

According to the U.S. Census, the population growth in Loudoun County hovers above 3% or an average of 950 new residents a month. Yet despite the continued growth, the number of food-insecure people in the county has decreased by 14% over the last two years, according to Feeding America statistics.

The floodwaters were steadily rising in Nicole Williams’ townhome when she called the Texas National Guard for help.

“The water was up to my waist,” says Williams, a home support aide who works at Eagle’s Trace, the Erickson Living community in West Houston. “I knew we needed to evacuate.”

Ashby Ponds student employees, shown here wearing tie-dyed t-shirts, held several community events to raise money for the Scholars’ Fund campaign. This student-run car wash was a big hit.

This fall, 25 high school employees at Ashby Ponds will begin the pursuit of higher education thanks to the generosity of the community members they serve.
