Ashby Village

Ashby Village launched in 2010 after many discussions and community meetings that began in 2007. We are residents of Berkeley, Albany, Kensington, El Cerrito, Emeryville and parts of Oakland who are united by our desire to remain in our own homes as we get older. Because we know that we may increasingly need assistance and support as we age we pool resources by paying membership dues and volunteering our skills and time to support the Village infrastructure and to assist one another.

Membership in the Village provides a wide array of supportive resources that include:

Home-based volunteer services as far-ranging as transportation, light housekeeping, grocery shopping, minor household repairs and friendly visitors

One-call vetted concierge referrals to paid service providers that can include gardeners, painters, attorneys, accountants, and personal care attendants

Cultural, social, and educational events and gatherings

Health and fitness activities



Supporting and empowering a vibrant and diverse community of individuals to remain independent, active, engaged and inspired as they age.
