"When I connect with my Village, I feel energized, because I am
part of a vibrant, expansive community.
Together, we’re creating what comes next in our lives."
The Village Network is a non-profit membership organization of active older adults 50+ in the Petaluma-Penngrove area. As part of an innovative nationwide movement begun in 2004, we are one of several hundred Villages revolutionizing the experience of aging.
Members and volunteers offer each other support services and social connections to improve quality of life and expand choices. We collaborate with other organizations to build a more age-friendly Petaluma.
We Are Part of the California and National Village Movements
The Village Network of Petaluma is part of the national Village to Village Network (VtV). Established in 2002, the Village Movement has since grown to include more than 200 active Villages across the country, with an additional 150 in development.
One of nearly 60 Villages in California, we’re proud to be part of the new Village Movement California (VMC). VMC connects Villages across the state to strengthen impact, accelerate growth, and
ensure sustainability of the Village Movement.
Together, we advocate for innovative, community-based solutions to improve quality of life and expand choices at all stages of aging, empowering older adults to sustain independence through community and remain in charge of their lives as they age.
Through our affiliations with VtV and VMC, we are building on the best practices of Villages throughout California and the U.S.
