As part of an innovative national movement, the Village Network of Petaluma is a nonprofit membership organization created to empower adults 60+ to continue living active, vibrant, and connected lives in our own homes as we age.

Who We Are:
We are a group of volunteers who have worked together for almost two years to establish the Village Network of Petaluma as a non-profit, community membership organization to empower adults 60+ 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 more than 130 other communities in the U.S., and we are drawing from their experiences. There are 9 Villages in the Bay Area, and more in development. We are the first in Sonoma County!
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.
"Aging should never be a solo game"
