News from Northeast Village PDX

Check out our new Facebook Page  


Our objective is to enable  our members to stay in their homes, aging in place, as well as they can for as long as they can, as cheaply as possible.  See About Us for more information about our Village.

Our Village is also part of a Portland-area Village Network.  Villages NW was founded in Portland in 2011 to serve as the “hub” of a “hub and spoke” organizational structure, with each Village becoming a “spoke” as it is established.  More information on our Village Network page.

Lewis Barrett: our new Office Manager

NE Village PDX is pleased to welcome Lewis Barrett, who took up his duties May 22 as part-time office manager at the 5021 NE Alberta Street office.
The Bay Area native brings a wealth of expertise and energy to this position.  Lewis says the Village is a fine fit for him because he enjoys exercising his administrative skills while working at the personal level to build community and social support. Educated in humanities at University of California Santa Cruz and San Francisco State University, Lewis also developed strong technology skills during the hot dot-com days – electronic communications, web development, and user support and training.
