Fulfilling our Potential

Join us for our 5th Annual Statewide Conference on Friday, June 2 at Preservation Park in Oakland, CA!

The time is right for villages to step into their crucial role within California’s aging services continuum. Learn about the local and statewide opportunities at hand. Gain knowledge, skills, and resources to advance your village’s mission and vision.

Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging Monthly Workshop Series

Fourth Wednesdays 10:00 – 11:30 am February – April 2023

Growth of our movement requires that we expand our communities to reflect California’s diverse populations of older adults. We’ve been talking about this truth for several years, searching for steps we can take. This series will highlight the work four villages –  Pasadena, Ashby, San Francisco, and Westside Pacific –  are taking on to engage new audiences of potential village members and volunteers.

We’ll hear how they decided to connect with diverse communities, how they prepared themselves, and what they are doing. Village Movement California will develop a summary of programs, practices, and policies for distribution after the series ends.

We encourage you to invite your leaders, members, volunteers, and partners.

Member Spotlight


ChaiVillageLA is the first synagogue-based village in the country, a bold partnership of two cutting-edge Los Angeles-area synagogues­—Temple Emanuel 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 support, caring and enrichment. Being a faith-based village, ChaiVillageLA aligns itself with the values of its synagogues and the wider Jewish community.
