About Coastal Neighbors Network
Coastal Neighbors Network is one of a rapidly growing number of Villages across the country that offers older adults options for staying at home and staying active even after transportation and household chores become difficult or dangerous – the point at which many people leave the community they love.
Coastal Neighbors Network is a community-based, nonprofit organization that provides services and information to enable Dartmouth residents to live safely, independently, and comfortably in their own homes.
Our mission is to enable Dartmouth residents age 50 and over to remain at home and to stay connected through a range of services provided by volunteers and approved vendors. We are dedicated to the concept of “Aging in Place.”
The Village concept started on Beacon Hill in 2002 and has blossomed into a robust movement that’s sweeping the country. There are roughly 200 Villages currently serving seniors across the United States and 150 more Villages being formed. Coastal Neighbors Network is part of the national organization, Village to Village Network, which works to connect individual villages to help them collaborate to raise their impact and sustainability.
