Who we are
The Village In Howard (TVIH) is a member-based COMMUNITY of Howard County residents 55 and older who enjoy life and new friendships, who are willing to help each other, and who want to live independently in our homes and neighborhoods.
Our events calendar
offers social, cultural and educational activities, and we welcome members and nonmembers to become volunteers who assist members in a variety of ways, including transportation to medical appointments, doing minor home repairs, helping with shopping and much more.
TVIH is part of the “Village Movement,
” which began when seniors in Boston volunteered to organize Beacon Hill Village more than 20 years ago. Publicity about the grassroots effort in Boston led to the movement taking root in many communities, including more than 70 in the DC metro area and Maryland who are members of the Washington Area Village Exchange
Last year, The Village in Howard provided 576 wellness calls and 118 rides, offered 594 social, educational and health programs, and its 77 volunteers logged 7,333 hours
