We Build Community

At Village, we understand that regardless of our individual identities, lifestyles, or beliefs, we all have a fundamental need to be connected to others and part of something larger than ourselves. That's why we are creating micro-communities called Villages, where everyone is welcome and everyone has a place.

Our Vision

A world where everyone belongs to and is engaged in their local community.

Our Mission

To help create and support sustainable community groups (Villages) within neighborhoods, workplaces, and families.


Our Ethos

In the past, humans lived in small groups where everyone had a role and belonged. Our differences were seen as a strength because we were stronger together. 

However, things have changed a lot since then. We've discovered and explored the world and universe, but we've also lost some important things along the way. 

The Village Ethos refers to a way of living and being that emphasizes community, cooperation, and mutual support.  It is based on the idea that individuals are interdependent and that everyone has a role to play in supporting the well-being of the community as a whole.  This ethos values diversity and recognizes that different people bring different strengths and perspectives that can benefit the community.  It’s characterized by a sense of belonging, shared responsibility, and a commitment to helping others. 

Today, we're facing some of the greatest challenges humanity has ever seen.  It's time to bring back what we've lost and remember that no matter what the challenge, we need each other.   It's time to return to our Villages!

Our Journey

Village was born years ago and nurtured by the passions and work of many individuals who came together in 2020 during the COVID lockdowns.  What emerged was something none of us could have done alone.  Look below for a list of our co-creators.
