This Is Our Village

Members of Lincoln Park Village are part of an innovative, not-for-profit community that is creating new ways to stay connected, to contribute and to live well while living longer. From their own homes, one phone call or mouse click connects members to an array of stimulating activities, friendly gatherings, learning opportunities and personal services - all delivered with individualized attention. Serving adults 50+ in Chicago’s north side neighborhoods from River East to Edgewater and beyond, our Village is a unique resource, leading the way to a better future for us all.
