We are a group of volunteers who are working to establish the Village Network of Petaluma as a non-profit, community membership organization to enable adults to age affordably in their own homes for as long as they can, as well as they can. Villages are member-driven, and primarily supported by fees from their members. Think relationships, collaboration, sharing, support in navigating systems and peace of mind.
The Village model is a way of life, not a place: "neighbors helping neighbors." The village model has been successful in nearly 100 other communities in the U.S., and we are drawing from their experiences.
Members call one number for resource referral, home visits, social events, computer help, minor household repairs, transportation, pre-screened service provider referrals, and opportunities to share one's special talents within the Village.
Our intention is to work in collaboration with existing community organizations to strengthen affordable services for seniors and increase the "aging-friendliness" of our community.
