Monte Sano Village and the Coronavirus
"Social distancing" is the antithesis of what the Village movement is all about. However, we must honor the ways in which the whole world is coming together to protect us, the vulnerable segment of the population. While we wait for the world to be safer, Monte Sano Village will continue to take Service Requests and fill them when possible and after considering risks to our members and volunteers. We are also working to find ways to keep our members and volunteers connected and engaged remotely. For up to date information about the coronavirus, please visit our summary page of important information and links HERE. If you have information or a link you think would be helpful, please send us an email at email@example.com.
Welcome to Monte Sano Village
Monte Sano Village is a membership-based, non-profit organization supporting the efforts of mountain residents to remain in their homes for as long as possible by enhancing a vibrant, intergenerational community and by connecting neighbors with a network of services and resources. The Village's development and services are specifically designed around our members’ needs, desires and talents, and it is exclusively staffed by volunteers. Our Village members are the decision makers, the financiers, the beneficiaries, and often the volunteers. We help each other by designing and supporting an organization we can all be proud of. When necessary, we help connect members to various existing programs and services. Yet our more personal goal is to be able to count on volunteers from the community we know, love and trust to provide member support that is not available through existing local programs.
Monte Sano is a special community. Our Village is a neighbor-to-neighbor support organization created to help us stay connected to our community as we age by coordinating and centralizing access to necessary information and services. Our Village is managed by members with the help of trained volunteers who provide a variety of services.
We also have a lot of fun together! A variety of educational and engaging activities are offered each year. These have included outings to Huntsville's beautiful Botanical Gardens, plays, concerts, hikes, parks and museums. In addition, regularly scheduled activities have included a monthly book club, play-reading group, reading buddies, writers group, games group, movie afternoon, and a monthly Mingle with refreshments and a guest speaker.
