A fundamental purpose of villages is to help seniors live independently in their homes by providing them with services, including transportation, minor home repairs, computer coaching and trouble-shooting, and other types of support. As an all-volunteer organization, we can't provide all the services we might like, only those someone volunteers to do.
Here’s how this works:
We made an early decision to make the Village an all-volunteer organization. That means we can only provide the services that our members – you - are willing and able to provide. It also means that we must make maximum use of information technology to manage the Helping Hands program, always remembering that some members do not use the Internet and that we must provide alternative ways for them to get services.
