Membership/Member Services

Providence Village currently has just over 150 members who live in a variety of neighborhoods. The specific neighborhoods that make up Providence Village include: The East Side of Providence (Fox Point, Wayland, College Hill, Blackstone, Hope and Mount Hope); Downtown and the Jewelry District; Oak Hill and Woodlawn in Pawtucket.

You do not have to live in one of these neighborhoods to join Providence Village. Social, cultural, and educational activities are available to all Providence Village members. However, practical home-based support, such as a ride or help in the home, is limited to members living within the Providence Village neighborhoods. A pay-what-you-can dues structure ensures that anyone can become a member. More Information
