It’s true, it takes a Village! Join us for a free presentation on Ballard’s new Village Program by program director Riana Nolet, at the Sunset Hill clubhouse at 7pm on Wednesday, May 10.
You can also hear the presentation on Sat., March 18, 4pm at the Ballard Library.
Now expanded into Ballard, the Phinney Neighborhood Association (PNA)’s Village Program empowers people to remain in their homes and neighborhoods while staying active and engaged as they age. It offers three types of services:
1) Volunteers who assist with home/yard maintenance, shopping, transportation, etc.
2) Information & referrals, such as vetted plumbers, electricians and dog walkers
3) Community-building activities, such as writing groups and educational outings.
There’s no age requirement to join. Young people, seniors, single parents, recent retirees, and any others who may need help with cleaning their gutters or getting to a doctor’s appointment, etc. can use the Village services. There’s an annual fee, based on different needs.
Volunteers are always needed—and much appreciated! Can you offer a ride, do a little handy work or gardening, or take a lonely person out for coffee? Training is provided.
The Village Program serves persons living in the Phinney, Ballard, Greenwood, Broadview, and Bitter Lake neighborhoods.
See you on May 10!
