Local Ingenuity Deserves a Statewide Stage

From San Diego to the Central Valley to the Bay Area and beyond, communities are changing aging through innovative programs being run by individual villages.

Too often, these successes remain known only to their members. Local village leaders already have full plates running their organizations. Some are even volunteers, meaning they don’t draw a paycheck for their considerable efforts. They need a partner to galvanize their momentum and give voice to their impact. A statewide collective can better explore promising initiatives for better aging—inspiring, amplifying and duplicating the efforts of local villages through the power of scale.

All across California, villages are innovating new forms of community organizing, social engagement and caring services to enable members to thrive in their homes and neighborhoods as they get older. Many of these innovations are scalable or capable of being adapted by other villages in the state, and Village Movement California provides the connections and amplification to make this happen.
