Northeast Village PDX, due to begin providing services Oct. 31, begins enrolling members Aug. 1. Enrollment for Full-service and Associate Charter members began July 1 and continues through the end of the year, requiring an additional $500 tax-deductible donation per member and offering a lid on membership fees through 2020.
Part of the group organizing seven villages in the Portland area, Northeast Village PDX is an intergenerational group of residents committed to enabling members to age in place in their homes. In addition to Concordia, the Northeast Village PDX includes the Alameda, Beaumont-Wilshire, Cully, Grant Park, Hollywood, Irvington Lloyd, Madison, Parkrose, Parkrose Heights, Rose City Park, Roseway, Sullivan’s Gulch, Sumner, Sunderland and Woodland Park neighborhoods, and the city of Maywood Park.
Full-service members receive assistance with transportation, household chores, minor maintenance and yard work from trained, background-checked volunteers. Those members and associate members additionally have access to lists of professional services companies that have been prescreened, community resources and an array of social and educational offerings.
