MISSION

Beacon Hill Village is a member-driven, non-profit organization serving residents age 50 and over who live primarily in the Back Bay, Beacon Hill, Downtown/Waterfront, Kenmore/Fenway, Midtown, the North End, South End and West End neighborhoods. We provide activities, programs, services and opportunities for community engagement as well as access to needed assistance so that we may lead active, independent and healthy lives and successfully navigate the transitions of growing older.

VISION

As members we will engage with each other to enrich our own lives and serve the needs of each other and our communities. We will: 
  • Have opportunities to help others;
  • Be able to teach what we know and learn when we are curious;
  • Have opportunities to enjoy mutual interests and activities; and
  • Be comfortable asking for help to obtain the support needed to live our lives as we best see fit.
As a Village we will:
  • Foresee and adapt to the changing needs of longer lives often lived without traditional support systems;
  • Engage more volunteers to support and extend our activities, programs and services;
  • Increase our membership consistent with our resources to serve its needs;
  • Assure our continuing financial support from individuals, corporations and private foundations; and
  • Through innovation and responsiveness remain a national leader among grassroots-led neighborhood Villages.
