Welcome to the Penn’s Village blog designed for members, potential members, the adult children of older adults and prospective volunteers.
Penn’s Village’s purpose:
- We are central Philadelphia residents of all ages, working together to support our neighbors who wish to remain in their own homes as they age or have special needs.
- By linking neighbor to neighbor we provide services such as transportation & assistance with chores, & make referrals to carefully screened neighborhood providers such as plumbers, electricians & personal care helpers.
- Our educational & social programs keep us informed & connected so that we are able to enjoy our vibrant urban setting to the fullest extent possible.
Through this blog over the next few months, we will explore interesting community activities and happenings that will pique your interest. You will also learn more about our programs, our need for volunteers and tips on how neighbors help neighbors thrive, connect and engage.
Right now as we celebrate our 10th anniversary, we are engaged in a strategic planning process to help us expand our reach and enhance our programs to help neighbors enjoy independence and stay connected in the neighborhoods they know and love. Below is a photo from our Strategic Planning Session in February.
