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 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 50 villages, with some operating since 2008.

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.

Diablo Valley Villages

Three villages located in Central Costa County – Clayton Valley Village, Lamorinda Village and Walnut Creek Village –  have banded together to bring practical help and neighborly community to seniors in their region. The three community-based villages together serve seniors who may need “a little help from their friends” as well as professional resource referrals to remain safely and comfortably in their homes as they age.
