Part of the Village Ventures network, Village Happy Valley is a website dedicated to providing neighborhood news and community engagement.

We’re here to bridge the gap between news & civic participation… and to encourage folks get involved with their community and support their neighbors. There are a million voices fighting for your attention, but we want to help you connect with your village, your neighborhood… where your power to connect and make change is the strongest.

Explore your Village with DuckDuckGo, the search company that respects your privacy (at the DuckDuckGo link, for repeated searches leave site: in the search box).

Sign up at the bottom of this page to get email notifications from Village Happy Valley. We publish a weekly news and events story to keep you up to date on what’s happening in the neighborhood.

Support us and help promote your business or organization to your neighbors by having us tell your story. Read about our citizen journalist training program there too.

Once you begin focusing on your neighborhood— your immediate physical community— you realize that there’s so much work to be done and stories to be told.
