About village networks

We are interested in developing a village network which supports elders to age in place, in a cooperative community. This concept is inspired and supported by the nationwide Village to Village Network, a national peer to peer network to help communities establish and continuously improve management of their own Villages whether in large metropolitan areas, rural towns, or suburban settings alike. www.vtvnetwork.org.

The mission of the VtV Network is to enable communities to establish, and effectively manage, aging in community organizations initiated and inspired by their members.

Villages:

  • are membership-driven, grass-roots organizations
  • are run by volunteers and paid staff
  • coordinate access to affordable services
    including transportation, inspiring health and wellness programs, home repairs, social and educational activities and trips.
  • offer vetted- discounted providers

We hold monthly meetings in Petaluma to discuss this project. For details, contact Anne Greenblatt at apgreen@sonic.net.
