Reimagining Aging & Community

Living independently. The comfort of the place you already call home. An active and connected community of older adults. People you can count on to help when needed. What if our older years could look like this?

Marin Villages is redefining aging and community for older adults. Our members and volunteers cherish living in their beloved homes, gathering for events and celebrations, forging new friendships, and supporting each other throughout their aging journey.

Members and Volunteers at an event

Marin Villages offers a diverse range of monthly events to cater to various interests. Our activities include coffees and meals, book clubs, games, a men's group, needle arts, fine arts, speakers, training sessions, walks, and hikes. During COVID, many of these programs transitioned to Zoom, ensuring our members remain connected, safe, and active. Learn more.

How We Work
We have a central office in San Rafael with a small administrative staff. Members call this office when they have a need for a particular service or form of assistance, and we match them with a volunteer.

In addition, we are represented in the community through our local, geographically based villages which are run entirely by volunteers. Currently, these local villages include: Mill Valley Village; Novato Village; Ross Valley Village; San Rafael Village; Tiburon Peninsula Village; Twin Cities Village.
