Penn's Village Responds to Coronavirus

UPDATE 03/22/2020, 9:00 PM--Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney issued a “stay at home” order this afternoon, implementing more stringent restrictions on social and commercial activity in the City of Philadelphia to further combat the spread of the coronavirus. The new restrictions take effect 8 a.m. tomorrow, Monday, morning. The order states that “all public or private gatherings of any number of people outside of a single household or living unit are prohibited.” The order allows people to leave their homes to seek medical care; buy food; care for family members, friends, or pets in other households. The order also allows residents to go outside for “walking, running, cycling, operating a wheelchair, or engaging in outdoor activities with immediate family members, caretakers, household members, or romantic partners.” You can read the order HERE

Membership With a Heart

Penn’s Village, with the other 250 villages across the U.S, is redefining what it means to grow older.


Most of us want to live active, engaged and interesting lives in the central Philadelphia neighborhoods we love. Penn’s Village cultural, educational and social programs create unique opportunities for discovery, learning and enjoyment. 


Should a neighbor need support, our volunteers provide services such as transportation, assistance with chores or navigating the health care system, companionship and even help setting up a computer or smart phone.


There are levels of membership based on your interests and needs, and very fulfilling volunteer opportunities both working directly with members and assisting behind the scenes.  Many neighbors are both members and volunteers.
