Modeled on other established villages, The Providence Village of Rhode Island was established in 2015 by a small group of volunteers who believed that aging at home benefits both individuals and their communities.
In 2019, the Providence Village Board established The Village Common of Rhode Island to support emerging Villages all over the state. Our local leadership, the Providence Village Steering Committee, concerns itself with our Village’s needs, plans, and members’ engagement and concerns. Our Village is represented on the Village Common Coordinating Council, which works with the Executive Director to provide coordination and operational support for all Villages. The Providence Village also participates in The Village Common Board.
