About Foster City Village, Inc.
The Village concept is a national movement of "neighbors helping our senior neighbors".
Foster City Village, Inc. (FCV) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit serving seniors (55+) who reside in
the 94404 Zip code area. It is a two-level membership organization (full and social)
offering resources and services to our community seniors that include, but are not
limited to, the following program areas:


Free transportation to medical appointments, banking, grocery shopping, salon or
other errands. We offer our full members two personal rides per week, and rides
to/from any of our events, at no charge. Drivers are our own vetted volunteers.
Nutrition education presentations, online cooking classes with recipe included to
cook along with the chef at home, access to healthy food through Second Harvest
of Silicon Valley Food Bank and delivery of Meals on Wheels to residents in the
94404 Zip code area (must register for this service through Meals on Wheels).
Educational topics, current events, and Bay Area authors’ presentations are just
some of the entertaining and enlightening features of the "The Learning Hour",
held monthly at the Foster City Public Library.

Fitness classes at the Foster City Rec Center for members and the public with
special attention to conditions of aging to keep seniors mobile and active.
Monthly "Walk and Talk" event for a group walk around Foster City.
Did you know that the U. S. Surgeon General has declared isolation and loneliness
as a national emergency? Foster City Village’s Buddy Connection is for members
who feel isolated and/or lonely, or just need a friend. Our vetted, trained
volunteers are matched with each member and receive multiple, consistent
contacts, visits and outings, slowly bringing the individual back into the
community at their own pace.
Home safety and tech assistance at members’ home with vetted volunteer
support.
Home improvement and repair services at no charge to qualifying members
(through our partnership with Rebuilding Together).
Miscellaneous social events include quarterly luncheons at Foster City

outdoor picnic, monthly game days that include Mahjong, Mexican Train, and
more. Free rides for members to/from any FCV event.
Multiple communications including activity schedules, quarterly newsletter, event
reminders and specific activity information with registration online feature.

organization into the next decade of service.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to enable older adults to continue living joyfully in their homes and community as they age, by providing mobility, practical assistance, easy access to services, social connections and educational opportunities. We are a non-profit, membership-based organization of neighbors helping neighbors for an improved quality of life. We are fueled by volunteers who enable healthier aging for our members and peace of mind for their families.

Description

Villages are part of the nationwide Village Movement and consist of community-based, nonprofit, grassroots organizations formed through a cadre of caring neighbors who want to change the paradigm of aging.

Foster City Village is the first Village established on the Bay Area Peninsula, following the lead of Beacon Hill Village, founded by a group of older neighbors in Boston in 2001. Those neighbors created a way to continue living vibrant and healthy lives in their homes and communities, even as they aged and gradually needed more support services.
