After the sudden death of my husband last year, I found myself needing help in small things to be done around the house…. These wonderful volunteers sent by Foster City Village enabled me to cope with this new chapter in my life.  I have nothing but praise and gratitude for their assistance.”

History

Foster City Village is the first Village established on the Peninsula following the lead of

Beacon Hill Village, which was founded by a group of older neighbors in Boston in 2001.

Those neighbors created a way to continue living vibrant and healthy lives in their homes

and communities, even as they aged and gradually needed more support services.

Today, 
the Village concept is growing rapidly throughout the country. 

 
In mid-2011, Patricia Player Maxwell championed the idea of implementing the Village
concept in support of the Foster City senior community.  She was joined early on by
Elaine Pitts, Laura Guluzzy, Jeff Brown, Marlene Hopper, Gil and Audrey Guerin, Yana Rudakov, Kate Mayott, Edd McKibben and Maryellen Conner.

 

Thanks to the early and ongoing support of the Rotary Club of Foster City and Lee Michelson,
CEO of Sequoia Healthcare District, we incorporated in February of 2012. Kathy McKibben, Jennifer Malament &  Gabriela Alvarez soon added their talents and energy to get the village organized and open for business on February 14, 2013.
