Grantee Spotlight: Pasadena Village

The Pasadena Village provides friendship, volunteer opportunities, and practical services that allow older members of the Pasadena community to remain an engaged part of our society. Members help one another to maintain their independence and avoid isolation, and volunteers are ready to provide extra assistance with tasks that are no longer as easy as they once were.

“We Villagers are very excited about our new sleek flooring,” said Peggy Buchanan, Executive Director of Pasadena Village. “It’s state of the art and will help prevent falls here at our center. The Pasadena Community Foundation plays an incredible role in helping our community, and we are very thankful to be one of the fortunate recipients of their grants helping seniors.”

PCF’s Senior Grant Program targets organizations that serve the frail elderly, defined as those senior members of our community that are mentally, physically, or economically frail. Pasadena Village ably serves this demographic, offering seniors the opportunity to gather together to enjoy events and activities that keep them active and healthy, including hiking (pictured above). In addition to a vibrant social calendar, Pasadena Village offers programs and services designed to support seniors, such as transportation, household, and other services that make it easier for them to live independently right where they want to be.pasadena village logo
