Frequently Asked Questions
What is the Village to Village Movement?
The Village to Village Movement is a national, not-for-profit, membership organization supporting senior citizens who desire to remain in their home and “age-in-place”. “Age-in-place” is the term used to describe the ability for a senior citizen to live independently, safely and comfortably, while remaining in their home. Individual “Villages” are locally developed and often operate within a specific neighborhood or community. Jersey Village Senior Outreach (JVSO) is member of the Village to Village movement, serving the City of Jersey Village, Texas.
The Village to Village Movement (V to V) is funded through memberships and donations. The V to V Movement objective is to provide their members a supportive network of services including, but not limited to, assistance with transportation, light housekeeping, educational programs, social and community engagement activities as well as additional resources crucial to staying engaged and aging independently.

How does JVSO determine the activities and events offered to its members?
Jersey Village community residents were recently surveyed in order to best determine their wants and needs; specifically for those residents age 55 years and older. The results of the survey revealed most senior residents want and need community support with educational and wellness programs as well as personal assistive services and community social activities. Periodically, JVSO members are asked for activity suggestions. These suggestions are given full consideration in planning programs while developing the JVSO Annual Events Calendar.
