Our History

Presbyterian Villages of Michigan’s History

Founded in 1945 by the Presbytery of Detroit, Presbyterian Villages of Michigan (PVM) is a faith-based, multi-site, 501(c)3 organization that serves seniors of all faiths. PVM became a freestanding, separate organization in 1989. Today, PVM serves 10,000 over 7,500 older adults throughout the state through market rate and affordable housing, and home and community based services. Which includes housing (market rate and affordable) and home/community based services.
