Archstone Foundation

Village Movement California is grateful for the generous support of Archstone Foundation, who shares our vision for fostering partnerships that lead to enduring change. Archstone provided essential seed funding for the planning, design and launch phases of Village Movement California.

Archstone Foundation is one of few foundations focused on preparing society for meeting the needs of an aging population. They have a special interest in innovative support models designed to enable older adults to age independently in their community and have been invested in the Village model since 2010.

Member Spotlight

ChaiVillageLA

ChaiVillageLA is the first synagogue-based village in the country, a bold partnership of two cutting-edge Reform synagogues — Temple Emanuel of Beverly Hills and Temple Isaiah — to challenge their congregants to rethink their paradigms of aging and use their accumulated experience, talents, wisdom and creativity to build a community of mutual respect, support, caring and concern. In ChaiVillageLA there is no distinction between members and volunteers. Rather, all members are expected to contribute approximately four hours per month to the health and vitality of the community. Service can be in a variety of forms, including serving on a committee, working in the office, organizing an interest group or program, or providing assistance to a fellow member.
