The Village Chicago is an innovative, not-for-profit membership community that connects members to each other and to the trusted resources that support purposeful, secure later lives. We are volunteer-based and able to respond to each member's interests and needs. Members value the unique array of programs and activities; the security of knowing someone is there to help; and a social network to last a lifetime. Our Member-Plus program enables all neighbors regardless of income, to join and participate fully in Village life. By leveraging the talents, wisdom and skills of older adults, we have become an important asset to our communities and to each other. Crain's Chicago Business reports that The Village Chicago is “at the forefront of the nationwide Village movement.”Together, we are inventing a new future for older adults in America.
