We are inspired by neighbors helping neighbors
We are committed to an inclusive, community-based
network of mutual support
We call our endeavor The Providence Village
Our Village is based on a model developed in Boston 15 years ago, when a group of Seniors decided they had no intention of moving to a "retirement home." So they created a way to stay in their own homes as they aged. Since then, over a 150 grass roots organizations based on their Village model have sprung up around the country, as well as a national organization dedicated to supporting these Villages.
Through a large pool of member-volunteers and a small paid staff, we aim to provide access to services and programs that make it possible for Seniors to stay in their homes and communities - safely and comfortably - for as long as possible.
