News from Northeast Village PDX
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.
