St. James NEST Affiliations
HelpfulVillage.com is an online platform for villages that makes them more efficient and easier to operate. Among other things, St. James NEST uses the Helpful Village platform to receive Member service requests and to match those requests with our Volunteers. Additionally, we use the HelpfulVillage platform for our website as well.
The Village to Village (V2V) Network helps communities establish and manage their own aging in place initiatives called Villages. St. James NEST is one of over 250 Villages around the country.
The Village to Village Network is the National Association of the Village Movement. It is a membership-based organization that brings Villages together to create a “Village commons.” Established in 2010, the Network evolved as a way for Villages to share best practices, provide expert guidance, resources and support to help communities establish and maintain their Villages. What started as a concept has lead the way for a positive, forward-thinking model for aging.
