The Village Movement
The Village Movement started in Boston in 1999 and has since spread across the nation. We are bringing this proven model to our elder population in Sonoma County.
707 Villages, Inc. will be a community led by older adults who share their skills, support and expertise with each other to navigate the challenges and opportunities of aging.
At 707 Villages, Inc. we believe a better experience of aging is possible when we can grow with and rely on each other.
Our members and helpful volunteers will come together to provide support and create new possibilities for what's next as we age.
When we unite as peers, we create a purposeful and powerful space for learning, laughter and courage as we take on the future.
We envision numerous local villages, representing towns or areas in Sonoma County, each operating independently according to the needs of their local community, but coming together when it's advantageous to share resources and experiences under the umbrella of 707 Villages, Inc.
Looking for a volunteer opportunity?
707 Villages is currently in development. We urgently need volunteers to form a task force that will steer us to a successful rollout throughout Sonoma County one town or local area at a time.
Can you help us? Here are some suggested areas where you might have talents which can help us get up and running:
Fund Raising and Develpment
We also need organizers for the individual villages in each local town or area.
Do you have these or other skills to help get the Villages on their way?
707 Villages is a member of Village Movement California.
