Make the Case for Villages

Village Movement California is spreading the word about California's villages, their successes, and their potential to transform aging.

Our start up phase is focused on raising the visibility of the village model and its benefits among a variety of audiences – the residents who might join their local villages, leaders of cities where villages are located, partners in the field of aging, and stakeholders such as health care providers, funders and policymakers. Our Village Brand Toolkit helps members market their villages and show their affiliation with Village Movement California.

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.
