Village Members help welcome Baby to Be "Reed"
at a baby shower for Rachel Reed at the village
Rachel Reed worked at Pasadena Village as the Program Manager in its beginning days. Her efficiency, compassion, and sense of humor were appreciated by everyone. Rachel and her husband, Andrew, are expecting their first child in mid-February and, in typical Village fashion, a large group of members of the Village during those years gathered at the Village office to shower Rachel with baby gifts, parenting advice, and warm wishes. Rachel enjoyed re-connecting with Village members and appreciated the baby supplies (many books of course), and especially the words of wisdom.

Welcome to the Pasadena Village – I am so happy you’re visiting our website! Just so you are clear, we are not a place to live, but a way to live.
The Pasadena Village is part of a national movement – a growing one due to our rising population. There are 300 active Villages with an equal number being formed, an exciting development with powerful implications.
The Pasadena Village was founded in 2010 by a small group of friends and neighbors who wanted an alternative to retirement communities and nursing homes for themselves. They created lists of the services that would help them live their lives in their own homes and their familiar neighborhood: support from friends (and making new ones), educational forums, cultural adventures, rides to stores and doctors’ appointments, referrals to home health care professionals, assistance with minor home maintenance and repairs, check-in telephone calls, and multitudes of other things.
We are a true grass roots, member based organization. We are self-governing and have a board of directors, an executive committee and several committees that keep our nonprofit Village moving forward. Our philosophy is based upon mutual support and active involvement by all members – even the smallest participation will enhance your happiness and life activities and that of our group.
The Village is not a social service organization, but one of support. We cannot provide full time care or meals or manage your life, but we do have fun, learn, make new friends and help each other. Our Village is a work in progress and changes according to members’ needs and choices. If you want a group of people to join you for sketching in the park, hiking, birdwatching, discussing critical issues, you will find them here. If you like to join others for dinner, share your art work, volunteer, come to a support group, this is your organization.
I look forward to meeting you!
