Penn's Village in the Philadelphia Gay News

2017 Slide Show

Membership With a Heart

Penn’s Village, with the other 230 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.
