Operations Manager

Seacoast Village Project

Founded in 2018 and based on the national Village Movement model of neighbor-helping-neighbor, Seacoast Village Project is dedicated to making “aging in place” a realistic possibility by supporting the social, educational and functional needs of older adults living independently.

As a membership organization, Seacoast Village Project is a trustworthy, one-stop resource for social connections, information, referrals, and select services provided by member-volunteers.

The organization seeks to provide localized, community-based engagement and services for residents of Portsmouth, Exeter, Dover, and the surrounding communities, organized into geographical neighborhoods (Clusters).

With Seacoast Village Project as their partner, older adults can maintain control over their lives, stay in their homes and actively participate in the communities they love for years to come.
