Welcome to East Falls Village!


A community within a community, the volunteer-driven East Falls Village was established in 2011 as a way to enable members to remain in the houses and community they call home.


Click “About Us” and “Benefits of Membership” on the menu for additional information.


We are part of a growing national movement with 205 open Villages and over 150 in development.  We are proud to be a member of the Village to Village Network, a national umbrella organization for villages.
