 “Over the past few years, I’ve had to face a number of challenges… My Village has been with me every step of the way...”

Dear Village Common Members, Volunteers, and Friends,

As we continue to observe national and local guidelines for combating the Covid-19 threats, our commitment to the mission of The Village Common of RI is stronger than ever.

A new “normal” is emerging which features innovative ways to provide supportive services and creative social connections. We are carefully evaluating and adapting our services to maintain safety for members and volunteers. We are developing the “Virtual Village” – a wide variety of online programs and social gatherings. Check our new calendar on the website to look for more information about upcoming opportunities.

Your input and comments are welcome. We value your perspectives on what we are doing to support The Village Common community. Please stay healthy and safe!

Jo Ellen Mistarz, Executive Director
Suzanne Francis, President, Board of Directors

At The Village Common of RI, we believe that a better experience of aging is possible when we grow with and rely on one another.

Every day our members and friends come together to provide mutual support and create purposeful and powerful opportunities for what’s next as we grow older.

Our mission at the Village Common of RI is to fundamentally change the experience of growing older here in RI by fostering the creation of these communities of mutual support – Villages –across the state and by directly supporting their long-term sustainability.
