Benefits of Belonging

There are real benefits to being a member of North Oakland Village. These include becoming an active part of a community, meeting new people and making friends.

Members are stimulated by attending creative programs and gain new knowledge from education presentations relevant to seniors. Members also contribute to the village community by volunteering and sharing their experience and skills with others. When needed, members get help from members and volunteers of the Village.
