What is Davidson Village Network?
Davidson Village Network is a grassroots, 501(c)3 nonprofit launching in 2017 to provide services, activities, and programs that members want to live more safely, more confidently, and more independently in their homes and neighborhoods.
Who can join Davidson Village Network?
Members may live in any neighborhood within Davidson. A relative or friend may purchase a membership for a resident of Davidson, even if the buyer lives elsewhere.
A member is someone age 50+ who:
- would more fully enjoy life, retirement and/or free time if they had some assistance inside and/or outside their home;
- chooses to remain in their home in order to enjoy a satisfying, healthy lifestyle and desires some assistance (non-medical) to do so;
- is single, married, partnered or sharing their home with others.
