Our Programming Partners


Welcome to Penn's Village
We are Philadelphia Center City residents of all ages, working together to support our neighbors who wish to remain in their own homes as they age or have special needs. 

By linking neighbor to neighbor we provide services such as transportation and assistance with chores, and make referrals to carefully screened neighborhood providers such as plumbers, electricians and personal care helpers.

Our educational and social programs keep us informed and connected so that we are able to enjoy our vibrant urban setting to the fullest extent possible.

Join Us
Neighbors join Penn's Village as Social Members, Contributing Members or Villagers, and as Volunteers.   
All receive Penn’s Village updates and newsletters.  Villagers and Social Members attend educational, cultural and social events and can be referred to a fully vetted preferred service provider upon request.   Contributing Members attend educational, cultural and social events at a discounted registration fee.  Social and Contributing Memberships are fully tax deductible. Villagers also have access to services provided by volunteers.  We have a wide range of fulfilling volunteer opportunities.   Although we encourage volunteers to become members, this is not a requirement.
2013 Garden Party


A Penn's Village member tells us: "“Penn's Village has made my life easier and more secure in ways large and small: Volunteers provide transportation to medical appointments and help with grocery shopping and household tasks such as assembling my new vacuum cleaner. Also, at long last, I have a reliable computer techie.”
. . . and a Penn's Village volunteer shares her thoughts":  “I enjoy facilitating our caregiver support group because I appreciate the honesty and caring shown by members who did not know one another before.  They share information and experiences to help each other.  As a social worker, I am so pleased to be part of a program where neighbors form a supportive community.”
