More than 70 years ago, a small group of women had the foresight to recognize the complex needs of the aging in our community, and the visionary non-profit organization, Peninsula Volunteers, Inc., (PVI) was born.
In an effort to ensure that those who helped build our community could continue to live in their community with purpose and dignity, the founders established an organization dedicated to improving their quality of life. Decades before others were focusing on seniors, these pioneers decided to create high quality and nurturing programs for the aging that were sorely needed then, and more so now.
Our membership numbers approximately 300 dedicated volunteers, all of whom are women. The membership elects the Board of Directors that operates both PVI and PVP (a separate Board for our affordable senior housing operations) whose program expense budgets exceed $5 million annually.
Members serve as Board members, committee members, and supporters of programs, projects and events. Our members are committed to support the organization and its mission through their time and donations, and as voices in the community.
