VILLAGE in the Village, Inc. (ViV) is open to all Corrales residents. There are two levels of membership: Supporting Members (click the button here) Supporting Member Signup
Full Members (click the button here) Full Member Signup

Supporting Members are the “backbone” of ViV and may participate in all ViV social events, including weekly coffees, bocce ball, nature walks, concerts, lunches, happy hours, and many other activities. Supporting Members “pay it forward” within our community with their membership fee. Additionally, by volunteering to provide services and support to Full Members, Supporting Members help ensure the sustainability of our organization. Of course, no member is required to volunteer.
Supporting Members may also request services from our volunteers. They may request up to six weeks of services for a short term need, or up to 8 services per year.
 


Supporting Memberships: $175/individual/year; $200/household/year.  

Full Members in addition to being able to participate in our ViV social events, are entitled to access regular volunteer services and support. The membership fee provides access to trained and screened volunteers through a coordinated system of linking members with volunteers. Our ability to provide volunteer services to Full Members is limited to residents of Corrales. To schedule services, please call the ViV phone number at 505-274-6206 or send an email to CallManagers@VillageintheVillage.org.

Full Memberships: $375/individual/year; $450/household/year.
