In The Community


Pleasant Hill Village has been here your entire life. It’s been here your parents’ entire lives. It’s been here your grandparents’ entire lives.

In fact, Girard itself was only 50 years old when Pleasant Hill was founded in 1905.

Since its founding, when it was an orphanage as well as a home for senior citizens, Pleasant Hill has been helping its communities. And we intend to keep helping for decades longer.

Here are some of the ways we serve the community:

  • Community events, such as our Easter Egg Hunt, our Summer Community Night and our Haunt the Hill event in October
  • Providing valuable volunteer experiences for our area high school and college students. For more information, contact Darrin Burnett.
  • Hosting a Senior Health Fair every September
  • Providing Charitable Care for residents who have problems making ends meet and forgiving the difference between our rates and Public Aid rates.
  • Hosting the Macoupin County Transit Service, providing parking and office needs. This provides a valuable service for residents with transportation issues.
  • Managing and overseeing the Girard Area Homes, a low-income housing complex.
  • Volunteering for charitable events such as the Alzheimer’s Walk and the Ice Bucket Challenge.
  • Donating food from our Community Garden
  • Opening our walking path to the community
