The Phinney Neighborhood Association is hiring a new manager for the PNA Village, an aging in community program that helps people stay in their homes and neighborhoods while staying active and engaged while they age.
The PNA Village encompasses three primary program areas, with services provided primarily by community volunteers and Village members:
Network of Helpers – help with small tasks and larger projects from neighborly volunteers. Examples of help might include yard maintenance, minor home repairs, transportation or shopping assistance, or help with pets. PNA Village members may also serve in a volunteer capacity, sharing their abilities with other Village members.
Information & Referrals – assistance in finding the resources to meet members’ changing needs, including a preferred vendor list, each vendor having been vetted by the PNA Village. Examples might include plumbers, electricians, painters, dog walkers, tech support or lawn mowing services.
Community Building Activities – programs and events to help Village members stay connected to their community while making new friends. Examples might include conversation groups, educational programs, information about issues of concern to members, or book and movie discussions.
The Village opened its doors three years ago and currently has 100 members, with more joining each month. The manager reports to the Director of Senior Programs, will supervise an AmeriCorps Volunteer Coordinator and join a deeply committed and spirited Advisory Board that are dedicated to building a strong community.
