Volunteer opportunity description

An overwhelming majority of older adults would prefer to age where they are, a concept known as "aging in place."  Penn's Village is a part of a growing national movement of community based non-profit organizations and is committed to helping residents of central Philadelphia neighborhoods lead vibrant, healthy lives while they remain in their own homes.
Volunteers provide our members with the majority of services that they are able to receive here at Penn's Village.  Consider joining our team to become part of the innovative Village model!
