Corporate sponsorships further Village Friends' mission to serve aging adults in the Auburn-Opelika community. The senior and retiree population in our area is growing and will continue to do so as Auburn-Opelika becomes a preferred destination. The support of our mission by business entities allows us to provide transportation, social outings, technology help, and small home repairs as well as other services. For example, our transportation of members to medical appointments of all kinds is recognized for it's value to our healthcare community.

Village Friends’ mission is to provide aging adults (Subscribers) with a support system allowing them to age in place in the home of their choosing. Importantly, Village Friends provides outings and events to counteract social isolation. Our mission improves life for families and enhances many aspects of life for older citizens.

Some citizens who could benefit from our services do not have the financial means to do so. Our Scholarship goal is to procure funding for the extension of services to Auburn and Opelika seniors who are underserved or cannot otherwise afford our minimal annual service fee.
