Know Someone that Might be a
Prospective Member?

The membership team keeps an ongoing list of Tierrasanta residents who are interested in learning more about the Village and/or hopefully joining the Village when the time is right. 

Prospective members can receive a copy of the Vibes via email once they are put on the non-member database.  SO, if you know of anyone who might be interested in learning more about the Village and membership, let us know.  We would be happy to contact them and make sure they know about our Website and monthly newsletter.  We look forward to the day we can once again do Informational Socials in person. Contact Ginny VanBenthuysen or Sue Christian.



Villages are planning programs and operations in light of California's expected re-opening. What has the COVID era taught us? What new ways of doing business will we keep, and what former ways will we resume? How are we reimagining the post-COVID village?

We are but one in a sea of Villages... many right here in California!

Your far flung friends and/or family may be near a Village in their distant locale, and eager to learn about possible events and activities they could participate in!  Help them connect!

WHY A VILLAGE?  Villages are well positioned to improve the mental and physical health of the communities they serve. Until the year 2029, 10,000 people will turn 65 on a daily basis. In Britain and the United States, roughly one in three people older than 65 live alone, and in the United States, half of those older than 85 live alone. Studies in both countries show the prevalence of loneliness among people older than 60 ranging from 10% to 46%.

Nationwide, the Village to Village Network has over 250 member chapters in 43 states Learn more about Village to Village here:  Village to Village

A little closer to home the Village Movement California website is loaded with useful information.

 You can link to it here:    Village Movement California      

The Village Movement California newsletter is also now available and full of good information.  It can be viewed on the link below.
