Our Impact

Village Movement California is a coalition of grassroots community 
organizations called villages. Together with our partners, 
we seek to revolutionize the experience of aging.

See what we do

Local Ideas Deserve a Statewide Stage

When village leaders connect, they can share learning, challenges and successes like what’s happening at Community Connections in Plumas County, a village with members as young as 5 years old! We channel the energy of villages across the state to promote the ingenuity happening at local villages that results in enhanced choices for everyone to age well.

Bold Ideas & Invested Partners

Expanding the possibilities for aging well means engaging new partners. Villages provide critically important supports  and services to help their members stay healthy and out of the hospital. When health care organizations and villages enter into mutually beneficial partnerships, members gain access to a wider array of services and support, and villages can prosper by attracting new supporters.

Lead the Conversation

When villages  join forces, their united voice becomes bigger and stronger. Villages and Age-Friendly Cities share a vision for creating a world in which we would like to grow older. The World Health Organization’s Global Network for Age-Friendly Cities and Communities now includes more than 540 communities across the world. Three of them are in the San Francisco Bay Area and home to thriving villages.
