MARIN VILLAGES

Marin Villages is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization empowering older adults to be active, connected and independent in the place they call home.  Through our network of volunteers and local villages we are bringing to life a great idea: vibrant local communities of members and volunteers, enriching each other’s lives, building new connections and making everyday life easier as we age.


We're celebrating our 10th Anniversary !

We are planning activities and events throughout the year. Please join us at the first of these many events: The Art of Dim Sum on April 10th.

Update from Lisa Brinkmann, Executive Director
What's New?

Welcome to WHO KNEW?  A new feature on our website focusing on life stories from our members and volunteers.
Who Knew?

Every single one of us has an original story to tell about something we’ve experienced. We welcome yours. The more of us who sign-up to tell our stories, the more connections we will forge, coincidences we’ll uncover, and stories worth preserving will be surfaced!  

Come on - sign up, share with all of us at Marin Villages. All you have to do is talk. We’ll come to you, or you come to us.

Did you know that Marin Villages will celebrate its 10th year as a nonprofit organization this year?
Yes, it's true. We were officially incorporated in May 2009 as one of the first, if not the first village organized to serve the entire County (vs. an individual community). Our hub and spoke model serves to address the local needs of each of our communities, while eliminating duplication of efforts. We are able to leverage our resources - financial, human and goodwill - to better fulfill our mission of empowering older adults to remain active, connected and independent in the place they call home.


Thank you to all the members, volunteers and donors who have believed in our mission and supported it as we've grown and evolved.
