Northwest Neighbors Network (NNN) is a 501(c)3 non-profit serving the communities of Shoreline, Lake Forest Park, Edmonds, Lynnwood, Mountlake Terrace and Brier. NNN helps seniors in our region remain in their homes as long as they wish and to remain socially active and connected to their neighbors. NNN is an all-volunteer group that is looking to hire part-time staff in 2021.
NNN provides services such as basic home repairs, transportation to medical appointments, and even help changing a light bulb for seniors who wish to remain living in their own homes. In addition, NNN provides a large number of opportunities for social engagement, such as outdoor walks, groups that read books and discuss movies together, and phone and online connections during the COVID-19 pandemic. For more information, visit NorthwestNeighborsNetwork.org.
We are seeking candidates for NNN's Board of Directors. Our dedicated, friendly Board of Directors is looking for new members and seeking diverse candidates and skill sets. If you are interested, we would love to speak with you.
To promote a thriving intergenerational network of community volunteers and vetted support services that helps aging Northwest neighbors stay living in the comfort of their homes and participate in enriching social, educational and wellness activities.
The local communities of Shoreline, Lake Forest Park, Edmonds, Mountlake Terrace, Lynnwood and Brier are among the multitude that are forming or have formed Aging-In-Place Villages worldwide. Northwest Neighbors Network is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation created using the model already in place in Northeast Seattle (N.E.S.T), Greenwood (PNA Village) and Capitol Hill (Wider Horizons) to help older adults (60+) remain in their homes and communities as they age. Village members pay dues, so the model becomes largely self-supporting once fully established. We are especially in need of volunteers in the key areas of member recruitment and retention, fundraising, forming strategic partnerships with businesses, and technical support. We are also looking for Board members with experience in the non-profit sector and providing services to seniors. To support or growing membership base, we're seeking enthusiastic volunteers for everything from running errands to handyman tasks to organizing social events, you name it!
We'll work with your schedule.
