Beacon Hill Village has been redefining aging in downtown Boston for two decades. We are a member-led community of active, creative and independent adults aged 50 and older who connect with and care for one another through an array of support services, social and wellness programs, cultural and educational activities and excursions.
We embrace our talents, share our experience and wisdom, nurture special interests, and foster deep relationships. We have one mutual goal: to grow older better in the homes and neighborhoods we love.
Beacon Hill Village runs on social capital and member energy. This village concept—built on the idea that together we’re stronger—emphasizes peer-to-peer networking to promote an active lifestyle, improve health and reduce isolation.
Membership is backed by an expert staff, dedicated volunteers and strategic partners. The staff and member-led committees collaborate to develop and deliver programs and services that reflect the needs and preferences of our members. The staff manages and updates a network of vetted resources and a database of service providers to help members navigate life transitions with up-to-date information.
As the founder of what grew to become the Village Movement
—a global network of neighbors helping neighbors— we are also social innovators empowering seniors throughout our country, city and neighborhood.
Together we’re creating what’s next in our lives.
Mission. Vision. Values.
