Welcome to Village Santa Cruz a non-profit, grassroots membership organization. We are a network of Santa Cruz city and county residents with a vision of aging as an active, empowering time of growing and learning, as important and meaningful as any other time of our life.
Our goal is a vibrant, caring community, neighbors of all ages helping each other, so we can stay in our homes and engaged in our community, through all the transitions of aging.
