Bellingham At Home is being formed to provide our members with a multitude of benefits to enhance our quality of life today, while also helping develop peace of mind about the future. Our flexible approach allows members to tap into our community activities and services as we need them, when we want them.
Our Village is launching in 2016 after many discussions and community meetings that began in 2014. We are residents of Bellingham, Washington.
Our Village is part of a national movement of older Americans who are taking charge of our future as we age. The first, Beacon Hill Village was established in 2001. Research has shown that the great majority of Americans want to remain in their own homes as they age, but there are currently few resources to make that possible for most people. The Village concept is that a community of people can pool resources by paying membership dues and volunteering their skills and time to support the Village infrastructure and to assist one another.
