Valley Village is part of a growing national movement dedicated to
helping seniors remain in their homes and maintain active, independent
lifestyles. We are a volunteer-driven membership organization that
couples old-fashioned neighborliness with modern know-how to provide
important services and enhance quality of life. We offer interesting
programs and valuable benefits to our members and are active in the
broader Mill Valley community. Our parent organization, Marin Villages,
maintains a small professional staff to coordinate key services, such as
fielding phone calls and matching volunteers with member requests, for
Villages across Marin County.

Villages also maintains an extensive listing of professional service
providers, many offering special member discounts. Need a home
healthcare provider? A plumber? An attorney? A handyman? We can help.
those wanting more than just services, Mill Valley Village is
establishing a range of social activities that reflect the wide
interests of our members. Don't want to go out to lunch by yourself, or
want to explore a new interest? Connect to another member and you've
made a new friend. To start, we have created a few programs, such as a
lunch group that samples interesting local restaurants, a walking group,
and monthly coffee events at the Sweetwater. Feel free to bring a
friend! In addition, our members link to other stimulating programs and
trips, such as outings to art galleries and music performances. We are
creating programs to provide practical advice about health, wellness,
financial concerns, home safety and more.
