Who We Are

Charlotte Village Network is part of a national movement supporting more than 40,000 members in over 200 villages throughout the world who are redefining how we age. Together we provide the support older adults need to remain in our homes and socially engaged.

We are volunteers, members, partners, givers, supporters, vetted vendors, donors and community leaders. We are the future.

What Area Do We Serve

Our service area was initially established based on U.S. Census data to serve the part of Charlotte that has the highest number of older adults. The interest in Charlotte Village Network has grown beyond that area so our service area will be dynamic and growing. It was enlarged in December 2017.

Our Mission

“The Charlotte Village Network creates a support system around residents as they grow older empowering them to enjoy life to the fullest, while living in their own homes, in their diverse and multi-generational communities.”

Our History

The Charlotte Village Network team began exploratory development in 2014, was founded as a 501(c) (3) nonprofit corporation in August 2015 by a steering committee of dedicated citizens, and since then has recruited volunteers who support and lead our efforts through our Board of Directors and Committees. We are actively recruiters, members and leaders.
