MEMBERSHIP CRITERIA


General — Members are residents aged 50 and older who live within the North Star Village boundaries, and who wish to stay in their own homes or apartments.*

Members may also be persons over 18 with a chronic illness or disability who would benefit from services and programs that support independent living.

Residence* — Persons who live within the service area may join our Village.
