Why Join Village Movement California?

A Voice for California Villages

Power of Numbers

Supporting Sustainability

Together with our partners and supporters, Village Movement California seeks to revolutionize the experience of aging, because we believe that the power of community can create society-wide change in the way we age. We are leading the way with the tools, connections and visibility needed so that villages throughout the state can thrive. By joining together, we can ensure that all Californians have access to vibrant communities that enhance and expand the ways we can age well.

The Village Movement is a new social venture built on the radical old idea that together we’re better. As human beings, we’re hard-wired for cooperation. The seeds of the Movement were planted in the Beacon Hill neighborhood of Boston in 2002, and has continued to evolve across the country. There are now over 225 villages in operation and another 130 in development nationwide. California is home to 60 villages.

Whether you are a village representative, a potential partner, a business providing services to older adults, or a foundation interested in new models of aging… whether you are a village member, a prospective member, or someone who is excited about the prospect of changing the paradigm of aging in America… we invite you to join us because:

Together we can make so much more progress than we can ever achieve alone.

Member Spotlight

Palos Verdes Peninsula Village

Palos Verdes Peninsula Village provides a community where members continue to grow, engage with one another, and age with independence, dignity and purpose.  Through volunteers and referrals, we provide support and services for members who have chosen to live in the communities and homes they love as they get older. Our mission is to preserve and enhance the comfort, security, dignity and sense of belonging for older residents who wish to continue to live on the Peninsula.
