What’s a Village?

Reciprocal Community

Connection

Growth

A village is a membership organization that connects older adults to the community, programming, and expertise they need to continue living lives of purpose and promise.

These innovative, community-based solutions improve quality of life and expand choices at all stages of aging, empowering older adults to sustain independence and remain in charge of their lives as they age.

Villages are founded by members of the community, and each village develops an organizational structure and offerings based on the needs of that community. For some villages, this means providing a full suite of events and services through staff or volunteers, while others may provide mostly referrals. Every village recognizes the power of personal connection in helping members remain active and engaged.

Diablo Valley Villages

Three villages located in Central Costa County – Clayton Valley Village, Lamorinda Village and Walnut Creek Village –  have banded together to bring practical help and neighborly community to seniors in their region. The three community-based villages together serve seniors who may need “a little help from their friends” as well as professional resource referrals to remain safely and comfortably in their homes as they age.
