Celebrating Older Americans Month: Powered by Connection with Penn’s Village 

May 18 2024, 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

This year’s theme, Powered by Connection, aptly describes the work of Penn’s Village, a membership nonprofit organization serving older adults in central Philadelphia for more than 15 years. Through a strong cadre of vetted volunteers, they offer members, depending on membership level, more than eight services to help older adults stay in their own homes as long as they are able. These include companionship, rides, technology assistance, minor home repairs, errands, Health Pals, emergency pet services, home organization, as well as weekly in-person and virtual social, wellness and educational programs, participation in interest groups, access to a preferred provider list, and more.

Penn’s Village members and volunteers will present a program on “How Decluttering Helps You to Stay Independent and in your Own Home,” at a post-Kiddush program on Saturday, May 18. As one member said, “We’ve lived in our home for 50 years, and the only thing we’ve thrown out are the kids.” Join us and learn more about their programs and services.
