This is your neighborhood. And we can help you remain here.

Carolina Villages is excited to announce major changes in membership categories, along with an expanded area for membership eligibility.

An Associate Membership has been created, suitable for anyone who would like to be part of the village, receive some services, but needs fewer services at this time than full members.

The Area of Coverage includes Chapel Hill/Carrboro postal addresses (zipcodes 27514, 27515, 27516, 27157), and has been expanded to include more of Orange, Durham, and Chatham Counties (see the rough map below).

See Membership Page for an explanation and more details.

Contact Mandy Summerson, Executive Director by phone at 919-960-1941, or by email at executivedirector@, to discuss membership.

This is Our Village

Would you like to remain independent, and stay in your own home as you grow older?

Do you want to remain engaged in the life of your community?

Carolina Villages supports these goals.

Carolina Villages is modeled on the national Village movement. It is a member-driven nonprofit organization serving Chapel Hill and Carrboro.

We offer an array of support services and social opportunities. We provide trusted guidance and support for navigating home services, and promote social interactions that lead to safe and vibrant aging in the community.

Village membership offers a vibrant and independent way to age in your own home.
