Welcome to the North County Village!

What is a Village?

"The Village community model combines aging in place with the type of interdependent living that helps make aging alone for longer possible. It's an innovative, DIY [Do It Yourself] take on what life in traditional American villages used to offer - trusted relationships with neighbors and the wider community. A nonprofit, grassroots solution that's governed by its members, villages have become the way of life for thousands of urban and suburban seniors across the US. The Village movement is now over 350 Villages strong, with 230 Villages that are operational and 130 in development.” – Senior Planet

The concept is simple:

You have a problem, need, or questions? Call the North County Village! 

Essentially a “one-call-does-it-all” phone number, the Village service allows members to talk to one person about all of their needs, whether they’re looking for transportation, health and wellness services, home repairs, or social and educational activities. Then the Village volunteer/staff researches the appropriate services and facilitates access.
