Welcome to Clayton Valley Village
Clayton Valley Village, founded in 2014, is a membership-based, member-driven, 501c3 nonprofit organization of seniors living in Clayton and Concord, California. (See map).
Who we are and what we do!
Committed to helping our members live independently in their own homes as they age, we provide transportation and an array of home-based services for our members through our volunteer network. We also sponsor social and cultural activities to minimize isolation and promote interaction. As a village member you will strengthen our community both by accepting assistance of our volunteers and by sharing your own interests and expertise with like-minded people. We invite you to explore our website to learn more.

In addition to meeting and networking with attendees from Villages across the country (as well as from Great Britain, Australia and New Zealand) they took the opportunity to learn about Chicago architecture and visit the famous Navy Pier on Lake Michigan. This video shows some of the highlights of their trip.
