Welcome to The Village In Howard!
The Village in Howard is a member-based COMMUNITY of Howard County residents 55 and older who want to continue to live independently in the homes and neighborhoods they know. Membership benefits include, not only various social and cultural activities, but access to various services such as transportation, home repair from vetted contractors, and assistance with simple house maintenance. These benefits enable members to actively age in place.
We are still evolving and welcome your interest and ideas.
