Carl Demas, President Who We Are:

As the President of the Serra Mesa Village, I would like to welcome you to our family of Villagers who thrive on the mesa surrounded by open-space canyons. In our beautiful environment with delightful weather, we work together to enjoy the benefits of our membership organization which includes social activities, physical exercise, learning groups, health education and cultural and travel educational opportunities. Our services are constantly changing to meet the needs and wants of Villagers.
– Carl Demas

Serra Mesa Village of San Diego (SMVSD) is a not-for-profit organization tailored for Serra Mesa residents (who have celebrated their 55th birthdays). SMVSD is based on the Beacon Hill Village membership model ( Beacon Hill Village enrolled its first members in February 2002. There are currently more than 140 Villages open and many more are in progress around the globe. Beacon Hill Village has been learning from experience as its Village matures. Their joy is to see variations on their model as more villages open.

SMVSD offers its members a variety of activities. The commitment is to enable resident members to live life to its fullest as they age in their own homes. We are a community built on friendship and participation in our full calendar of events.

Serra Mesa Village has the power to transform life for older residents. Why not join us?

We are a volunteer organization and work hand in hand with the community of Serra Mesa which is located in central San Diego. As we grow and work together to continue our busy meaningful lives, we discover that we are among friends. We flourish as we study current trends in health and wellness, and realize what it means to have optimum health, physical and spiritual well-being.

SMVSD is being launched in phases based on membership need. Phase One offers multiple social, educational, and travel opportunities. Phase two will offer care recommendations including transportation options.

Members support SMVSD with an annual $25 membership fee and participate as volunteers to keep down costs.

Mission Statement: Serra Mesa Village is a membership organization developed by and for Serra Mesa Senior Adults 55 and over. Our purpose is to connect with each other and provide resources needed to maintain, support and enrich fully engaged adults as we age, remaining in the homes we love.

Our Purpose: We are living longer, more active lives, yet increased mobility and smaller families mean that many of us find ourselves at some distance from close relatives. We want to create a network of social connections, events, information and support services that will permit Serra Mesa members to live conveniently, safely and happily as they grow older – in their homes.

Serra Mesa’s geography is a community built on mesas and bordered by beautiful canyons with open space. It’s nestled within freeways of I-15, I-8,and I-805. Communities around us are Mission Valley, Kearny Mesa, Linda Vista and Tierrasanta.

We have a military presence with Lincoln housing and we remain primarily residential which assures us less traffic and a quiet neighborhood. Serra Mesa’s population is 26,837, of that 5,856 are people over 55.
