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.

Volunteers with NNN choose whether they want to work with many seniors or be matched up with one seniors that they help on a regular basis, and everything in between.

At Northwest Neighbors Network (NNN), our Volunteers serve seniors in Southern Snohomish and North King County with ¨good neighborly¨ tasks like offering rides, shopping running errands, helping at home (light cleaning/laundry), taking out the garbage, shopping, helping with technology support, help with animals, social visits and more.

We offer an easy, flexible, self signup process to make volunteering easy, at your pace and fun! Select services that appeal to you and connect with a neighbor in need. No Schedule (unless you create one)!

Mission Statement

Northwest Neighbors Network helps seniors age well in their own homes by providing volunteer services and events


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!
