VillagesOKC is a member-driven, volunteer-run, not-for-profit organization serving the greater Oklahoma City Metro area, from Guthrie to Norman and Choctaw to El Reno. Members connect to develop the resources needed to age comfortably in the home of their choosing. Wherever two or more members have an interest or question, VillagesOKC organizes connections around those interests, focus groups, and support teams. We find purpose helping others and thus helping ourselves. Like any good neighbor, we offer occasional volunteer support for each other for the bumps in life!
Virtual neighbors enabling mature adults to come together to learn, plan and serve with spirit and dignity.
We believe, too, that people are healthier and happier when they are connected to others and the community. When our members are faced with challenges, they don’t need to face them alone. We seek to create a caring, respectful and positive community that is characterized by compassion, kindness, and generosity.
Our vision is multiple Villages where:
Villages embrace bringing services to people rather than moving people to services. The first Village began more than a decade ago when a few aging friends and neighbors joined forces to create a way for them to "age at home" and remain independent as long as possible. There are now nearly 300 Villages nationwide.
