Villages are "volunteer first", organizations that use trained/screened volunteers to deliver most services.
Villages provide a "one call does it all" approach.
Volunteers provide Village members with services such as transportation, shopping, simple household chores, seasonal yard work, everyday small household repairs and maintenance, computer, TV remote controls and other electronic troubleshooting, etc.
Villages do not duplicate existing services, they fill the gaps in current or overloaded existing public services.
Pre-screened vendors provide professional services and home repairs to the members at a reduced fee.
Villages build relationships and develop community through social activities such as book clubs, exercise/wellness activities, and educational /cultural programs.
