Welcome to Raleigh Village East, a non-profit organization for adults 55+ who want to age in their homes. Our virtual village will provide services for those who want to be able to stay in our neighborhoods as we age by having the help of volunteers, access to useful resources, and reduced prices for some services. We want to give members who are 55 and older who live in our adjoining neighborhoods both the practical means and the confidence to live their lives to the fullest in their homes/community. We also want to create a social network that will help us stay engaged, pursue our interests with others, and have fun.
Our initial members will come from the neighborhoods that fall within the boundaries of the 01-14 precinct and the Mordecai CAC :
We all need support from time to time and aging alone can pose problems. Instead of moving to a retirement center or moving in with your children, you (and your children) might want to see how life could be with our network of neighbors, volunteers, and service providers. We hope that together we can stay independent as long as possible.
