The Mission of Community Village Lawrence is to enhance quality of life for the entire community by helping neighbors remain in their homes as they age. We aim to do this by creating a network of supports and services following the Village model to make aging at home a long-term, affordable option.
Community Village Lawrence is a membership-based service with an expanding volunteer network. Any Lawrence resident who wishes to age in their home but feels they may need extra support is invited to join. Become a member or volunteer for Community Village Lawrence and join a strong and growing community. Visit the Membership and Volunteer Opportunities pages for more information.

Community Village Lawrence is accepting applications for our next AmeriCorps VISTA.
As our Health Support Volunteer Coordinator, investigate best practices, develop a manual, implement training, and evaluate results. You will meet community leaders and attend community events to let the community know about the additional services. Recruiting potential volunteers and additional members will develop or refine your skills in recruitment and public speaking. Documentation of the entire process is essential for sustainability and expansion of this project. A previous VISTA said the experience of developing a project from inception to fruition was extremely valuable in her next job search. The VISTA also said the chance to meet such a diverse, interesting group of members, volunteers, and community supporters, whom she would never have met otherwise, was an amazing opportunity.
