HomeHaven is a grassroots organization created by vibrant and energetic neighbors who are redefining what it means to grow older in today’s world. We want to stay in our own homes, to preserve our independence, to build a sense of community and social connection, to feel secure about services and service providers we pay for, to use our talents to help one another and our community, and to continue to learn and grow and thrive.
In order to develop community, neighborliness, and intimacy, we are organized into six individual virtual villages. The Six Villages are not physical places to which members must move. Rather we continue to live in our own houses, apartments, or condominiums, in our own familiar surroundings, within diverse neighborhoods of mixed ages and family configurations. We get to know one another, plan activities together, and offer help to one another as needed. We are always ready to help our friends, and our villages make both neighbors and strangers into friends.
Our villages operate under an organizational umbrella called HomeHaven that is efficient, accountable, and keeps costs low. Through volunteer committees and a small professional staff, the central office plans events for all members and guests, selects and monitors health and household service providers, makes service referrals, coordinates volunteer services, manages the budget, and is responsible for the business of HomeHaven.
