As a member-run organization with a small paid staff, Redwood Coast Village will coordinate volunteer help for people over the age of 50 in Humboldt County.  Members help members, and outside Volunteers of all ages help with the kind of tasks a friend would provide.  There is no fee to become a Volunteer.

     Bear with us, this is a volunteer-based start-up!

Here is how Redwood Coast Village would work: 

Members 50 and older can call our central number to request assistance with:

  • Going your Way - Transportation to appointments, shopping, social activities and more

  • "Helping Hands" for light fix-it jobs, occasional pet care, and help with home technology

  • Member Recommended Businesses: lists of plumbers, caregivers, gardeners, etc.

  • A social bulletin board for events and activities

  • "One phone call" help with RCV services and referrals to other agencies

  • Check-in phone calls

We are a grassroots, member driven group, creating the future we want to live in.  

Redwood Coast Village is a program of the Area 1 Agency on Aging, a 501(c)3 nonprofit.
