My Glacier Village is a nonprofit organization and a local chapter of a national organization serving seniors to stay active, connected, educated and inspired, with a goal of seniors aging in their home with a plan.

Village volunteers help assess homes for age-friendliness, and a variety of educational events and activities are hosted to give members opportunities to feel empowered to live their best lives as they age. Then, as needs arise, such as rides to doctor appointments, grocery shopping, small maintenance tasks, or friendly calls and visits, our members can rely on volunteers and each other to assist.
