4-20: Marilyn Olson Executive Director of VillagesOKC – It is a Plan for the 50-Plus NOT a Place!  

This week on The Rise & Thrive OSJ Radio Hour, Saturdays 9:05 a.m. on The Eagle, KZLS 1640AM or listen in on the OSJ app and website “Home Page” anytime! In-studio: Marilyn Olson Executive Director of the Non-Profit VillagesOKC – It is a Plan for the 50-Plus NOT a Place!  

Marilyn Olson is Director for VillagesOKC which is Oklahoma City’s first and only virtual community.  It’s a Plan not a place.   VillagesOKC, Inc is a non profit cooperative of like-minded mature adults who volunteer and help each other as we age in our own homes.  Ms. Olson is an Oklahoma farm-girl holding a degree in Education from Southern Nazarene University.  For the past 35 years she’s tackled issues of aging from within several retirement communities, hospitals and nursing homes and as frequent caregiving consultant to families. She has extensive experience as the responsible caregiver for several family members.  At separate times she has been caregiver for a 92-year old Aunt in Medford, an 89 year old uncle in Marlow, and for ten years her 103 year old mother.  Marilyn and her husband say they are enjoying their best decade yet with three grown daughters, their husbands and 10 above-average grandchildren. 


We are an Oklahoma not for profit corporation established September 2017 by a group of volunteer neighbors.  The vision is for many cooperative Villages across the Oklahoma City metro area. As a hub organization, we share knowledge and resources, still allowing multiple Villages to develop their own neighborhood organizations. We believe by working together we can accomplish more but share what is common thus minimizing costs. The hub nurtures, coaches and supports the work of each village within the spoke.
