At Village Movement California we believe
in the power of community to achieve
society-wide change in the way we age.
Discover all the ways you can collaborate with Village Movement California.
Over 110 people attended Village Movement California's inaugural statewide convening on May 31, 2019 to build connections, share expertise and learn about social isolation, leadership development, diversity and inclusion, and our movement's future direction.
Village Movement California is a coalition of grassroots community organizations called villages. Together with our partners, we seek to revolutionize the experience of aging.
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.
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.
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.
Palos Verdes Peninsula Village provides a community where members continue to grow, engage with one another, and age with independence, dignity and purpose. Through volunteers and referrals, we provide support and services for members who have chosen to live in the communities and homes they love as they get older. Our mission is to preserve and enhance the comfort, security, dignity and sense of belonging for older residents who wish to continue to live on the Peninsula.
