Innovation Can’t Wait

The COVID-19 era insists that the village movement embrace innovation to succeed. In lieu of a face-to-face convening, we held a four-part workshop series titled “Innovation Can’t Wait.” All sessions took place on Zoom and were accessible through a smart phone, tablet, computer, or landline. Close Captioning was provided.

Member Spotlight

Palos Verdes Peninsula Village

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.
