Mission Statement

The mission of Westchester Playa Village is to help older adults (55+) remain as active and independent as possible, in the comfort and security of their own homes and neighborhoods, for as long as possible. We do this by providing services and programs that promote healthy and engaged living and it is done with compassion, dignity and respect. We believe our efforts provide enrichment to, and help improve the health and well-being of those we serve, and by extension, enhance and improve our community.

Voted Best Place to Volunteer by the local Hometown News!

We currently provide services to residents of Westchester, Marina del Rey, Playa del Rey, Playa Vista, Ladera Heights, Culver City and adjacent communities.

Westchester Playa Village (WPV) is a non-profit, 501(c)(3), volunteer-driven, membership organization. Our goal is to help older adults remain as active and independent in the comfort of their own homes and neighborhoods.

WPV is part of a nationwide movement of over 100 local Villages. The Villages are not physical locations, but organized networks of local volunteers, staff and community partners that help members stay engaged in their neighborhoods by providing a wide array of services and programs.

WPV seeks to bring members of our community together in the spirit of collaboration, purpose and giving so that we may enhance the lives of many, and offer a sense of security and peace of mind to seniors, and their families, who have paved the way for all of us.

Would you recommend Westchester Playa Village?

(WPV) Westchester Playa Village is a great place to volunteer. WPV volunteers help older people (55 or older) stay self-sufficient and in their homes by helping out with things that are difficult for them to do themselves. There are all kinds of ways that you can help depending on your skills and knowledge. I for one have been providing transportation to and from places that members need to or would like to go. I have found it extremely satisfying and have enjoyed meeting some wonderful people, members, volunteers and a great staff. Maybe like me this is just what you have been looking for. I highly recommend WPV if you are looking for some volunteer work that offers a great deal of flexibility as to when and what you do.
