Welcome to East Falls Village! 


East Falls Village (EFV) serves the East Falls neighborhood of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, bordered by the Schuylkill River on the west, Wissahickon Avenue on the east, the Wissahickon Creek to the north, and Hunting Park Avenue to the south.


We’re not your usual bricks-and mortar community--although we serve one. A "virtual" village, the things we do are real; the people we serve are our neighbors.

 

EFV is a program of the East Falls Community Council—a volunteer-driven membership organization designed to provide support, services, and programs enabling East Falls residents to live healthy and meaningful lives in their own homes for as long as possible. If you live in East Falls, you are encouraged to join. 


Here are some of the things EFV provides: 

  • Social events, educational programs, and small-group get-togethers 
  • Access to information—call one number or visit one website for assistance or information referral 
  • Access to vetted contractors and professional service providers, some offering member discounts
  • Rides to appointments, shopping or errands
  • Friendly visits; check-in phone calls 
  • Help in maintaining independence at home 
  • Assistance with paperwork, household tasks, electronic equipment and more

 

East Falls Village offers social connections and activities, security in dealing with service providers, convenience for errands and appointments and assistance for members to continue to live in their own homes as they grow older.

Please look around our website to learn about our activities and benefits. Check our Village Events Calendar page to see what we're doing this week/month, and which activities are open to guests and the public. Get to know us, then click below for our Membership page to join and/or Volunteer form to help your neighbors. You can do either, or both, online.
