The ERV Community Center Foundation (ERV) was formed to run and manage all aspects of the McLean Campus, Gene Lucas Community Center (GLC) and tenants. ERV is responsible for bringing services to enrich the local community by providing space, classes, and events on campus and through the GLC. In February 2021, ERV officially took on operations and ownership from the McLean Foundation.
