Portland will soon have it’s own Village to help support our neighbors aging and thriving in place in their homes! Portland Area Villages has been formed to support all of our neighborhoods and their efforts to bring the Village Model of support to their residents. Read about the network that supports Villages, and check at end of article for contact info for our very own Village.
Village to Village Network
In 2010, the Village to Village Network – a national organization that collaborates to maximize the growth, impact and sustainability of individual Villages and the Village Movement – was formed. The Network provides expert guidance, resources and support to help communities establish and maintain their Villages. The Village Movement started with Beacon Hill Village in Boston over 15 years ago and today there are over 200 open Villages and more than 150 in development in 45 states and the District of Columbia. Village to Village Network and the Village Movement will not only impact Villages and their members, but the lives of countless families, caregivers and members of the broader community they serve.
