California Demands More Options for Aging Well

Middle-income Californians have few options for aging with self determination—even though they comprise the largest population of those 65+ in age.

We need a change agent, an advocacy organization that can work with the legislature and other policymakers to develop laws and programs that ensure that every Californian can choose from options for aging support that fit their needs and desires.

Village Movement California will work with the legislature and other policymakers to develop laws and programs that ensure that every Californian can choose from better options for aging well.

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.
