About Us

Introduction

At Home launched in 2012. It is modeled on the Village to Village Network. In each of over 200 locations around the U.S, people have banded together to create 501(c)3 self-directed or governed organizations catering to the needs of seniors who want to remain in their own homes as they grow older. While the model has been the pioneering Beacon Hill Village in Boston they vary from urban to rural in nature, each with specific needs and challenges.
