History of Village Development: 

A group of about twenty people from a local church met in 2008 to determine a way that we could continue to live in our own homes as long as possible. We decided not to be affiliated with one congregation, but to be open to all persons in the community. We received a small grant to provide resources for printing and mainly to become incorporated as a not-for-profit corporation, which was achieved in 2010. AIPGF encouraged membership from throughout the greater Glens Falls areas, and developed a list of potential needs and services for members. After incorporation the governance shifted from a Steering Committee to a Board of Directors.
