Stay Where You Live, Live Well Where You Stay
Capital City Village, founded in 2011, currently serves 110 members and believes seniors have the need for social and intellectual contact, autonomy, live safely in their preferred residence, and a sense of value to others. Our organization supports this vision by providing services and supports that help seniors in Austin, Texas to live fuller, healthier, and more productive lives.
Capital City Village Services During the COVID-19 Pandemic
Please review this entire message carefully. In view of the COVID-19 Pandemic, we have changed a number of our standard operations. All of our programs are currently held online only to protect the health and safety of our members, volunteers and guests. Our Board is now considering ways we can begin to once again conduct in-person (combined with virtual) events. Please monitor our Events page for updates.
In regard to services to members, it's important that our volunteers observe certain protocols to keep themselves and members healthy. We have advised volunteers of recommended protocols to follow when working with members.
We have limited member services to only those that are essential (not elective), plus tech help and home/yard services that can be done outdoors or with sufficient space to protect the safety of our volunteers and members. We ask you to schedule elective and nonessential services for later. We will also be closely monitoring our Village Connections members to make sure you have necessary services. We encourage you to use delivery services for groceries, prescriptions and pet supplies. Please let us know if we can help with recommendations.
Please let us know ways we can help you during this time, from getting you to essential doctor's appointments to making sure you have food, meds and services essential to quality of life. The Village can make a difference and we will. Our phone numbers are posted here - call us if you need us!

Capital City Village is distinctly different from traditional bricks-and-mortar retirement centers. The members and volunteers of Capital City Village, a "virtual" village, have joined together in pursuit of a common goal: to live safely and comfortably in our own homes and communities while remaining healthy and active. We are building a community of helpers who aren't necessarily your friends or relatives, whom you don't mind calling on because they are your fellow members and you're not "putting them out."
All members receive the same number of services, regardless of the member fee level, which is based on income. To see the types of services we provide to members, take a look at our Member Benefits page. Generous donations and attendance at our fundraisers supplement member fees for those who cannot afford to pay the full fee.
Please consider a donation or attend one of our fundraisers, so that any Austinite who wishes to be a Village member may be able to do so.
