By now most of you will have heard that we are starting 2020 out with a change in leadership at Marin Villages. Peter Lee is joining us as our Interim Executive Director starting January 6th. 

You will have a chance to meet him at one or more of our various events as the new year gets going. 

Meanwhile Peter can be reached at or though the main office phone number: 415 457-4633, if you have a need to speak to him directly.

Of course, BJ and Diane are continuing and remain ready, willing and able, to assist you as always. The entire team at Marin Villages is gearing up for an exciting year of helping us all stay connected, active and independent in the place we call home and the community we love!

The Impact of Marin Villages
One of our dearest members, Vivienne, explains the impact Marin Villages had on her life and well-being. Vivienne passed away peacefully in her home, with her cat at hand - just as she had hoped. This video was created shortly after Vivienne had been diagnosed:
