Northwest Neighbors Village proudly provides a subsidy to 28% of our members. On average, reduced-fee members use more hours of volunteer services than full-fee members, volunteer services that increase members' access to medical care, groceries, and social opportunities while building a relationship with a trusted neighbor. Increased funding for subsidized memberships will allow us to offer valuable services to more seniors in our community regardless of their ability to pay.
Now more than ever, your generous support of Northwest Neighbors Village makes a great difference in the lives of older adults. For over ten years, Northwest Neighbors Village has offered member-driven programming and services and has adjusted to meet the needs of our members over time. Today is no different!
Your thoughtful donation will ensure Village members will continue to find community and support through a network of caring volunteers who make frequent telephone contact, attend to members' needs, and help members navigate new online programming. Your generous support will make it possible for your neighbors to rely on the guidance and support of our trusted staff who are working around the clock to keep our Village community updated on information and resources and coordinate supportive services for members in need.
We can't change what is happening, but we can bring our community together in meaningful ways. Northwest Neighbors Village is committed to supporting our members during this time. Together, we can ensure our Village rises to the challenges faced today and continues our important work into the future.
We envision a generous, supportive community where older adults are valued, age with dignity, and enjoy opportunities for growth and engagement. Last year Northwest Neighbors Village volunteers provided more than 9,000 hours of volunteer support - That is more hours than there are in a year! While our volunteer services have been adjusted to meet social distancing guidelines during the coronavirus pandemic, our volunteer services have increased to meet the needs of each individual member.
Northwest Neighbors Village's mission is to enable older adults to thrive as they age in our community by offering a robust network of resources and opportunities.
