Welcome to North Oakland Village
Your life ...
Your home ...
Your way ...
We are a membership-driven and largely volunteer-staffed organization. Our purpose is to build community support, a “village”, with services that can make it easier for seniors to stay in their homes comfortably and for as long as possible. Organized as a non-profit, we are modeled on the grassroots concepts of community and mutual support that characterize a village.
Our vision is to build a community where all are supported, valued, and thrive as they age. Our mission is to support aging in community in Oakland and Piedmont through programs and services which provide options for independence, engagement, and well-being.
