The Village in the Woods is a community based, membership organization serving the greater Huntington Woods, Michigan area (including the Berkley School District and Pleasant Ridge). We support adults, 50+ so they can remain independent in their homes and in the neighborhoods they call home. We provide neighbor-to neighbor connections, social programming and supportive resources through screened and discounted preferred providers to assist you or your loved ones to remain independent and fully engaged.
To learn more, give us a call at 248-592-5041.
Did you know FORBES listed joining a Village as the #1 thing to do upon turning 50? Why 50? Because that is the time to think about and plan for how and where you want to live the rest of your life. Help create and maintain the community you want by getting involved with the Village in the Woods.

We have been really busy lately...
With the help of our friends at Arcadia Home Care and Staffing, we offered a Spring Clean-Up for Village Members needing a little help getting their yards ready for summer, we have been working with Berkley High School arranging teen volunteers to help members with dog walking, moving things around the house, and other tasks. The Village provides such great opportunities for intergenerational connections.
We've been to the theatre (Motown the Musical, Kinky Boots, Once and Pippin). And, we toured Detroit Old and New, with our Friend, Linda Yellin and Feet on the Street.
Perhaps most exciting, we held our first Member's Only Planning Meeting to discuss future programming and activities. We have grown significantly since we first opened our doors and are ready and able to turn the Village in the Woods into a truly member-led organization.
The Village Movement was featured on the NBC Nightly News Hour with Brian Williams. His in-laws are members of Staying Put, a Village in New Canaan, CT.
