About Us

 

In 2007, a group of Mount Vernon neighbors and friends in their retirement years gathered to discuss their common goals of leading vibrant, social engaged lives in their homes and communities. With an eye to the future, our founders also wanted to create a network to provide the support they might need in the future as they age in place. After much planning, Mount Vernon At Home, a volunteer-powered village, was born!

 

Ten years down the road Mount Vernon At Home has 160 members, 70 volunteers and offers a full array of activities and services. Our staff and volunteers take great pride in offering solutions to each call our office receives. We pack our full monthly calendars full with social, cultural and educational events for a variety of engaging activities.

 

What is a Village?

 

 A village is a network of neighbors helping neighbors redefining the aging journey! We are a grassroots organization committed to helping retirement age neighbors live engaged lifestyles and providing support as needed.

 

The village movement began with Beacon Hill Village in Boston, MA in 1999. It swept across the country and there are now 230 villages nationwide.

 

Mount Vernon At Home is a welcoming village offering "concierge" service to our members. We connect you to exciting programs, events and resources needed to maintain and support vibrant lives as we age.  Mount Vernon At Home is committed to meeting the changing needs of our members as we all age.

 

Our Mission

Mount Vernon At Home's Mission is to build a village of caring friends and volunteers offering solutions to support the lifetime independence of our members allowing them to age in place.

 

Mount Vernon At Home is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation.
