Our Mission:

Enable members to live independently, comfortably and safely in their homes.

Our Vision:

A dynamic, responsive community of members who support meaningful and fulfilling lives for one another.

Research, including that of insurance companies, has shown that people are much better off in their own homes than in assisted living facilities. The Athens Village works with a number of local, regional and national agencies to further the interests of its members.
