Christy Heinen |
Director of Development
Christy Heinen became the Development Director for Saint Francis Home in May 2020. She served in the same capacity for more than 18 years with the Little Sisters of the Poor Saint Joseph’s Home, until their planned departure from Virginia was announced. She feels fortunate that she is able to continue with another Catholic Home whose mission is to ensure that Richmond has an affordable, quality assisted living option for the elderly who have limited financial means. Christy believes the elderly deserve to be treated with dignity, respect, and love, regardless of their financial situation, and she enjoys working with others who want to help make their lives as happy, comfortable, and active as possible. Born and raised in Richmond, and a graduate of St. Gertrude High School, she has a Bachelor of Arts in English from the College of St. Benedict in St. Joseph, MN.
