"There is a
fountain of youth: it is your mind, your talents, the creativity you
bring to your life and the lives of people you love. When you learn to
tap this source, you will truly have defeated age."
Marin Villages formed in response to a 2007 Marin Grand Jury Report on Aging which found Marin County to be one of the fastest aging counties in the State. With the third highest cost of living in California, many older adults are finding it difficult to spend their senior years in their own homes.
Our organization is an alliance of local villages with one central office that focuses on the administrative, funding and development aspects of the organization. Members call the central office with requests and we work to find volunteers to assist them.
Our Local Villages focus on presenting a variety of programs tailored to their members' interests, allowing them to stay engaged, meet neighbors and participate in life-enriching events.
Marin Villages serves the following communities:
Belvedere Corte Madera Fairfax
Greenbrae Homestead Valley Kentfield
Larkspur Mill Valley Novato
Ross San Anselmo San Rafael
In addition, Rainbow Village started in February 2015 to meet the needs of older adults in the LGBT community.
Aging brings on changes and needs for services that can quickly accelerate. While life care facilities are the preferred choice for some and the best choice for others, most of us wish to remain in the homes we cherish and the communities we love! Marin Villages works to make this desire a real possibility.
