Cambridge Neighbors is a leading, grassroots organization that is part of a network of national and international "villages," part of a burgeoning movement that fosters a "neighbors helping neighbors" culture as we age, enhancing our ability to live in our communities for as long as possible with good quality of life and peace of mind.
Founded in 2007, Cambridge Neighbors, formerly known as Cambridge at Home, is dedicated to supporting older adults in Arlington, Belmont, Cambridge, Somerville, and Watertown age in place. Cambridge Neighbors was established by a group of forward-thinking Cambridge residents who anticipated the challenges of an aging population. They believed that they should have the opportunities and supports necessary to remain integral parts of their communities, largely irrespective of financial or familial circumstance. Today, there are over 300 village organizations nationwide.
Mission: Cambridge Neighbors (CN) is a membership-driven organization dedicated to helping adults age 60 and older in Arlington, Belmont, Cambridge, Somerville, and Watertown stay in the homes and neighborhoods they love. Anticipating the challenges of an ever-increasing senior population, CN seeks to provide its members the opportunities and support necessary to remain an integral part of their communities, giving members peace of mind with practical services, stimulating activities and experiences, and a social network to enable successful "aging in place."
