Who We are...
East Falls Village is a volunteer-driven organization established in 2011 to enhance the lives of residents in the East Falls neighborhood of Philadelphia as they grow older.
We provide support, services, social and educational programs, planning, and information to enable our members to live healthy and meaningful lives in their own homes as they age.
Click “About Us” and “Member Benefits” on the menu for additional information.
We are part of a growing national movement with 195 active villages and over 180 in development. We are proud to be a member of the Village to Village Network, a national umbrella organization for villages.
