Interested in Starting a Village?
Avenidas receives many requests from people all over the country about how to start a village in their community. Most villages are organized as independent nonprofit organizations. However, Avenidas Village is one program offered by a large, well-established senior services organization. If you represent an organization interested in forming a village as part of its services, our experience will be particularly relevant. If you represent a group of individuals, our experience may be less helpful but we welcome your inquiry.
