Welcome to Century Villages at Cabrillo

We need your help! Please consider supporting our Adopt-a-Camper program

During the school summer break, many of the residents at the Villages at Cabrillo have few options for their children once school is out.  Traditional summer camps cost about $200 a week.  For the children at CVC, these camps are unaffordable and out of reach as many of our families are currently homeless or have limited income.  CVC is committed to providing our youth with the same opportunity for enrichment programs that other children in the community have access to.  With your help CVC plans to offer a 9-week Summer Enrichment Camp to 30 children.  Each week the camp will have a different theme that will expose the youth to new

Inaugural Villages at Cabrillo Social Impact Report

We have just published our inaugural 2011 Villages at Cabrillo Social Impact Report!  The Social Impact Report represents the culmination of a year-long effort to aggregate social impacts across ten (10) of our community’s non profit service providers.  Historically, Villages at Cabrillo service providers have separately and independently reported out to their funders while attempts to report on a campus-wide basis were assumption-driven, anecdotal, and largely focused on “activities.”  The Social Impact Report attempts to address these deficiencies through an aggregated approach that is data-driven, empirical, and ultimately focused on the mission-inspired “outcomes” we are seeking to create in combating homelessness. CVC worked closely with Professor Beth Manke, Ph.D., from

The newly formed Villages at Cabrillo Collaborative

We are pleased to announce that the Villages at Cabrillo’s “ED group” has been officially recast as the Villages at Cabrillo Collaborative (the “Collaborative” or “VACC”).  On Thursday, February 16, 2012 Collaborative officially ratified and signed the Villages at Cabrillo Collaborative Agreement (“VACCA”).  The VACCA enshrines  the group’s collective aspirations, defines the purpose of the collaborative, establishes the core functions of the collaborative, and clearly identifies the roles, responsibilities and expectations of being a Villages at Cabrillo collaborative member.
