ARHC Board
  How We Work

Culpepper Garden consists of four independent nonprofit corporations set up to comply with U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) requirements. Each corporation is led by a board. All four boards have the same volunteer board members.

  • Arlington Retirement Housing Corporation (ARHC) provides overall management direction; raises funds and performs community outreach for Culpepper Garden I, II and III.

  • Culpepper Garden I provides independent living residences and services for seniors in 204 apartments.

  • Culpepper Garden II provides independent living residences and services for seniors in 63 apartments.

  • Culpepper Garden III provides assisted living residences and services for seniors who need help with activities of daily living, such as bathing and dressing, meal preparation, and medication management in 73 apartments.

Residents pay rent based on their individual incomes and receive at least one meal a day.* A mix of other resources, including subsidies from the federal government and Arlington County as well as contributions from our donors, are used to cover the remaining costs and ensure that no resident is forced to leave Culpepper Garden due to lack of funds alone.

Local Partnerships
We also benefit from close ties with our partners in the community.

Culpepper Garden would not exist without the guidance and support of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Arlington, whose board of trustees authorized the planning committee that eventually became the Arlington Retirement Housing Corporation. The church and its members have provided ongoing leadership and support for more than three decades.

Arlington County also has been a long-time supporter of Culpepper Garden, providing on-site services for residents as well as essential financial assistance. In addition to subsidies to help some of our residents pay rent, the county provides subsidies to defray assisted living costs for some residents, which can run as high as $2,500 per month per resident. The county also provides subsidies to cover the costs of additional meals for a limited number of independent living residents.

*Rent for residents of Culpepper Garden I is not subsidized but is affordable. Rent in this building ranges from $736 to $1,032 per month.
