Our Mission is to assist older neighbors to live independently in their own homes in central Philadelphia by providing caring services and programs that increase social engagement through a network of volunteers.
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.
Self-Registration is now available, see instructions here

A very sincere thank you to the First Presbyterian Church for generously providing space to Penn's Village and for always being there for us.
Penn’s Village welcomes and actively encourages an inclusive and diverse community of members, staff, Board of Directors and volunteers. Inclusiveness and diversity means welcoming all and excluding no one because of age, race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, social-economic status, physical abilities, religious beliefs or political beliefs.
