New models for aging successfully have emerged to help people avoid institutional living. Expanding choices beyond moves to nursing homes or retirement communities, neighborhoods are forming Villages to foster "aging in place". Many of these grassroots organizations have limited management experience or expertise and need assistance if they want to survive and thrive.

CHN works with Villages to successfully design start-up operations, achieve sustainability, mount new programs, expand memberships, and manage growth.

We help Villages promote financial health; achieve marketing successes; provide quality services to their members; effectively recruit and utilize volunteers; and streamline operations for efficient use of resources.
