“It’s easy to meet up with interesting people here, who inspire me to go onto new endeavors and life experiences.”

– Judy, retired high school teacher

Community Life

At Wake Robin, we care about each other, the environment, and the community we live in. Everything here is designed to empower you to be yourself and create a life you love.

You can choose to live a more private life, with just a few social obligations, or you may want to dive into community life, serving on committees, volunteering, or planning activities. Wake Robin residents volunteer 3,040 hours per month—750 of those hours are dedicated to businesses and organizations in the town of Shelburne. The choice is yours. And no matter what, you’ll find friendship, fellowship, and support from your Wake Robin neighbors.

“What I was looking for was a philosophy of doing with, rather than doing for. To me, there’s a world of difference. If you’re doing for, you’re seeing people as helpless. If you’re doing with, you’re seeing people as having rich backgrounds, skill sets, and approaches to life. For me, that’s what Wake Robin offers.”

– Sally, Painter and Former Vt. State Senator and Chair,
Senate Health & Welfare Committee
