Volunteers are the heart of Northwest Neighbors Network. We could especially use volunteers that are willing to drive our members in N. King Co. and S. Snohomish Co. where they need to go. Transportation to medical appointments, the grocery store, and other vital places is the #1 request we receive from our members. While this volunteer opportunity is flexible in terms of days and times, we hope that interested volunteers will become part of our community. What makes Northwest Neighbors Network special is that volunteers get to know NNN members over time, ensuring our elderly neighbors get help from people within their own community that they know and trust. Interested volunteers must provide their own automobile and insurance, as well as pass a background check. NNN will provide a volunteer orientation, as well as training on COVID prevention protocols.
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!
