Transitioning to independent living at Fellowship House is an exciting new phase in an older person’s life.
Living at Fellowship House
Fellowship Square offers independent apartment living in a safe and dignified environment for seniors (aged 62 and older) on a low fixed income. Our four properties are regulated by contracts with the US Housing and Urban Development agency which allows us to offer apartment living with desirable amenities; rent is never more than 30% of a person’s income.
There’s something very special about life at Fellowship House that makes it unlike any other place on earth. Just step onto the property and you’ll feel the warm, accepting community of neighbors who make it feel like home. Our management staff are devoted professionals who seek to provide the best environment for 800+ residents while managing operations of the place the residents call home.
We understand that each individual is unique and has needs which may change over time. Fellowship Square does not provide any assistance with activities of daily living or health care services. Residents are welcome to use outside home health care options and contract directly with home health aides that enable them to continue enjoying life in our community.

A full calendar of activities, events and volunteer opportunities. Our activities are part of a holistic wellness approach that helps seniors live a robust, fulfilling life. We offer a full social calendar of exciting activities and encourage residents to get involved in the community around them. A 2017 survey of residents at Lake Anne Fellowship House showed that 41% of residents volunteer locally and a third of them have been doing so for more than five years!
No long term leases. We know how much seniors value their freedom, so there is no long-term commitment at Fellowship House though many of our residents have lived here for more than 10 years! We offer a one-year lease for residents’ first year and then the lease is month-to-month for as long as they wish to live here.
Scheduled transportation. Drivers transport residents to exciting cultural outings, personal errands, and to off-site destinations for weekly planned activities.
Pets warmly welcomed. We love having cats, birds and fish as part of our community. In fact, some of our most popular residents are furry or have wings! Your pet is welcome in each Fellowship Square community – after all, they are part of the family!
Weekly housekeeping and laundry service. Two Fellowship Square properties offer housekeeping and laundry service for a minimal cost. We take care of the housework so residents can spend time doing the fun stuff! No more vacuuming, no more dusting, no more loads of laundry – we want residents to enjoy their day!
Most utilities included. Virtually all major utilities are included in residents’ monthly rent. That includes electric, gas, water, trash pick-up, heat and air conditioning — everything except your cable and phone bill.
Free resident and guest parking. For residents who choose to bring a car with them to Fellowship House, we offer convenient parking for them and their guests.
Fitness room or exercise equipment. While every community is unique, each provides residents with access to exercise equipment. Three of our properties offer convenient walking trails and each property has scheduled onsite exercise classes.
Flex space and TV rooms. Each Fellowship House offers a comfortable room for games and puzzles, enjoying the latest hit TV show or just catching up with neighbors. At Largo Landing, residents can compete head-to-head with games on the Nintendo Wii®.
