Mission Statement

Working together to provide members with the practical means and the confidence to remain in their own homes as they grow older.

Description

Ashby Village is a community-based network of people over age 50 living in the greaterBerkeley area united by a desire to remain in their own homes as they get older. They are aware of the fact that they may increasingly need assistance and support. Membership in the Village provides a wide array of resources including:

  • Home-based volunteer services such as transportation, light housekeeping, grocery shopping, minor household repairs and friendly visitors
  • One-call vetted concierge referrals to paid service providers that can include gardeners, painters, attorneys, accountants, and personal care attendants
  • Cultural, social, and educational events and gatherings
  • Health and fitness activities

Our Village has a "volunteer-first" policy, finding a qualified volunteer to fulfill a request before referring members to a commercial vendor. Ashby Village volunteers include members, their children, college students, empty nesters, retirees, and many others from the community.

Some of the benefits for volunteers are:

  • Staying active - physically, mentally and socially
  • Connecting with others, and feeling part of community
  • Putting talents, skills and capacities to good use
  • Paying it forward - knowing that someday each of us will also need support
