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 reimagining aging and community for older adults. Our members and volunteers enjoy living in the places they already call home, coming together for events and celebrations, building new friendships, and supporting each other through the journey of getting older.

Pop-Up Shop Ultimate Thrift Shop Boutique

Join us at our fourth annual Pop-Up Shop Ultimate Thrift Boutique! Beautiful treasures, rare finds, and lots of fun looking through the elegant boutiques we’re setting up at Northgate Mall. We’ve got a womenswear boutique, kitchenware, and home furnishings/linens. The three stores (#77, 106, and 112) are close to each other in the center of the mall—look for the signs. We’ll be open 11:00am – 5:00pm Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, June 6 – 8. Come early and come often—you will LOVE what you see!

Members and Volunteers at an event

Marin Villages offers a range of events each month to suit diverse interests, from coffees and meals to books, games, a men's group, needle arts, fine arts, speakers, training, walks, and hikes. During COVID many of these programs have moved to Zoom, keeping our members 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.
