Greater Niles Village (GNV)
Fremont’s first village is forming. A group of citizens of the greater Niles area are developing GNV as a community of neighbors who share their skills and support to navigate the challenges and opportunities of aging. GNV will engage neighbors along Mission Boulevard from the Union City border to Morrison Canyon/Walnut Avenue.
Greater Niles Village is part of the Village to Village Network
, a nation-wide association begun in Boston in 2010. There are nearly 400 villages across the US. Villages are non-profit, member-driven organizations dedicated to positively impacting health and interdependence by assisting members with social networks and practical assistance to age safely and successfully in their own communities. Village members experience reduced isolation, increased independence and enhanced purpose of life. Through villages, older adults are empowered and remain in charge of their lives as they age.
The Steering Committee has created working Teams which are responsible for Administration, Member Services, Outreach and Publicity, Technology and Fundraising start-up activities. GNV invites you to join us now as a Team volunteer. Bring your expertise to help us shape a dynamic village.
