The Rockville Area Village Exchange, Inc. (RAVE) is a vibrant nonprofit 501©(3) organization that helps developing and newly formed villages in Montgomery County become mature, successful, self-sustaining villages. We secure public and private funds to provide an array of resources and customized support to our surrounding Villages

 

What is a Village? 

Villages are local, volunteer-led organizations that support community members by fostering social connections through activities, events and the coordination of volunteers using a neighbor-to-neighbor model. While no two villages are alike, services may include transportation to medical appointments, light yard work, home maintenance, tutoring, friendly visits, social outings and more.
