Statewide Convening – Innovation Can’t Wait

June 24, July 8, July 22, and August 5 2:00 – 3:30 PT on Zoom

The village movement must embrace innovation to succeed. In lieu of a face-to-face convening, we’re launching a statewide Innovation Can’t Wait Series. This online conference will address the opportunities and challenges presented by Covid 19 and equip local villages with the tools, technologies and strategies to ensure older Californians are cared for during extended periods of physical distancing. Whether it’s a viral pandemic or California wildfires, villages were built for this moment.

Villages in the Time of Covid

June 5, 2020, 10:00 – 11:00 am

This statewide webinar was co-hosted by the California Collaborative for Long Term Services and Supports. For all the challenges Covid-19 presents, there are an equal number of opportunities for growth. Villages, like many other entities serving the aging and disabled populations, are proving that they are a vital infrastructure for rapid response and are up to the task. The Villages are learning how quickly they can adapt to change and reinvent the ways they operationalize support and human connection and redefine intergenerational community.

ChaiVIllageLA members toast another successful outing

Member Spotlight


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.
