How to start a "village" in your own community



Vickie Epstein joined Avenidas Village as the new program director in August of 2007 and brought with her an impressive array of experience. Vickie earned an MSW from Saint Louis University in Missouri and did most of her early work in medical settings, including a five year stint at O'Connor Hospital in San Jose. Vickie served as Recruitment Director for Child Advocates and Director of Program Services for APJCC (Addison Penzak Jewish Community Center) in Los Gatos. In addition, Vickie worked with NCCJ (National Conference for Community and Justice) designing diversity programming for elementary and secondary schools in San Jose, and trained volunteers to deliver these programs.


Vickie’s role as Director of Avenidas Village has been a multi-faceted one as she is responsible for not only program evolution and the directions the Village takes but she is also operational, providing health related member services as needed. Avenidas Village is one of the largest villages with 365 members and is the first Village on the west coast.

This native Wisconsinite is married, has two children and three grandchildren.
