About Ashby Village
Aging Together: Taking Charge of Our Future
We are a community of people over age 50 united by our desire to remain in the culturally rich, multigenerational neighborhoods that we know and love. Ashby Village connects members with each other and with the resources they need to remain active and independent.
Ashby Village benefits include:
- Connection - We host a broad range of social and cultural activities and events each month, including neighborhood potlucks, group hikes, book clubs, happy hours and parties. It’s easy to make new friendships within our cross-generational community of members and volunteers.
- Support - Village members are just a phone call away from a host of volunteer services, including rides to doctor appointments, minor household repairs, computer assistance and help with gardening, pet care and light housekeeping.
- Resources - Members also can get referrals to carefully vetted paid service providers, including gardeners, painters, attorneys, accountants and personal care attendants.

What is Ashby Village?
Our members enjoy a multitude of benefits that enhance our quality of life today, while also helping develop peace of mind about the future. Our flexible approach allows members to tap into our community activities and services as they need them, when they want them.
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.
Our village is part of a national movement of order Americans who are taking charge of our future as we age. The first, Beacon Hill Village was established in 2001. Research has shown that the great majority of Americans want to remain in their own homes as they age, but there are currently few resources to make that possible for most people. The Village concept is that a community of people can pool resources by paying membership dues and volunteering their skills and time to support the Village infrastructure and to assist one another.
