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.
