Village Movement California partners with stakeholders interested in transforming the experience of aging across the state to strengthen impact, accelerate growth and ensure sustainability of the Village Movement.

Together, we advocate for innovative, community-based solutions to improve quality of life and expand choices at all stages of aging, empowering older adults to sustain independence through community and remain in charge of their lives as they age.
