The Village Movement 

What is a Village?

A Village is a virtual community of older people committed to aging in place and community - living in their own homes and communities comfortably - while maintaining their lifestyle.

Beacon Hill Village Starts a Trend

The Village movement started 20 years ago with Beacon Hill Village in Boston. Today, a national organization called Village to Village Network helps communities manage their own aging in place initiatives. There are over 300 Villages and many more in development across the country.

Other Villages on Cape Cod

There are now five villages serving parts of Cape Cod and the Islands;

  • Neighborhood Falmouth
  • Barnstable Neighbor 2 Neighbor
  • Bay to Sound Neighbors
  • Nauset Neighbors
  • Vineyard Village at Home


All Villages are built from the ground-up to serve their own community in a way that works for that location.  Villages are nonprofit organizations. Volunteers who provide the services are the lifeline of the Village Movement.
