Village in the Woods...Living Well at Home and in Community
The Village in the Woods is a community based, member led organization serving the greater Huntington Woods, Michigan area (including the Berkley School District and Pleasant Ridge).  Its purpose is to support its members to age at home and in the community by providing concierge services, health, wellness and social programs as well as volunteer opportunities and neighbor-to-neighbor connections.

 It Takes Villages: Rock n' Roll Generation Changes the Face of Aging.
We had a wonderful turn-out at Local Kitchen and Bar to hear Judy Willett .  Over 80 people attended.  We enjoyed friendship and delicious appetizers and dessert while Judy spoke about about the Village Movement and how the Village in the Woods is truly on the cutting edge.
If you missed this program and want to learn more, please contact the Village Office.  Someone will be glad to speak with you. 

The Village Movement was recently featured on the NBC Nightly News Hour with Brian Williams.  His in-laws are members of Staying Put, a Village in New Canaan, CT.  Click the link to watch this exciting report and see the type of community we are working hard to create right here in the greater Huntington Woods area.
Did you know the Village in the Woods has a Facebook page?  It's a great way to see what is happening at a glance.  We also want to share our page with adult children of older adults still living in the Huntington Woods area. We encourage you to "LIKE" and "SHARE" our Facebook page.  The more followers, the better we will be able to reach those in need of our services.
DO YOU KNOW any older adults in the Greater Huntington Woods area who may need our services?  Please feel free to pass our information along, or let us know.  We will contact them directly.  Neighbor-to neighbor assistance is what makes the Village run.
We've Lowered Our Price!
Over the past year you have heard a lot about the Village in the Woods. Our success is based on being responsive to the community in which we work. While we have spoken to the community, we have also listened.

The most frequent feedback we have received is that our price point is a barrier to membership. In light of this concern, we are pleased to announce that the Village in the Woods is lowering its annual membership fee to $575 (less than $50 a month) for an individual membership and $775 (less than $70 a month) for a household membership.

We are so happy to update everyone on our new price point!
If you are interested in joining the Village in the Woods or want more information, please feel free to use the "Contact Us" tab or call 248-592-5041.  We will be more than happy to talk to you.
