Montgomery County Villages

Villages are local, volunteer-led grassroots organizations that aim to support community members who choose to age-in-place.  They foster social connections through activities and events and coordinate volunteer help at home using a neighbor helping neighbor model.  There are close to 200 villages in the nation and about 50 in the DC metro area.  Each village is unique and reflects the character, interests and needs of the community that creates it.  The village leadership decides what it owuld offer and how it would operate.  Some villages choose an intergenerational model that serves all members of the community.
