ABOUT BEACON HILL VILLAGE

Established in 2002 by neighborhood residents, Beacon Hill Village is a non-profit membership organization that creates opportunities for older adults to choose how aging is lived and change how aging is valued. Serving hundreds of Boston residents age 50+, BHV supports its members in

living active, independent and healthy lives and successfully navigating the transitions of growing older. We provide programs to educate and entertain; health and wellness activities to increase physical activity and improve overall health; linkages to home- and community-based services, transportation and grocery shopping to facilitate convenience and independence; social events and shared interest groups to build community and prevent isolation; and opportunities for volunteerism and community engagement to create a sense of purpose. All programs and services are in direct response to the expressed needs and desires of our members.

Today, there are more than 350 open and developing villages across the country and around the world, all supported by the Village to Village Network, which Beacon Hill Village helped to establish and is a member of today.
