At 7 p.m. Thurs. April 30 the (PBS) KCTS channel 9 television show called IN Close will feature the PNA Village. This type of village is one of hundreds of existing and forming “virtual villages” in the U.S. – membership-driven, grass-roots organizations that, through both volunteers and paid staff, coordinate access to affordable services including transportation, health and wellness programs, home repairs, social and educational activities, and other day-to-day needs enabling individuals to remain connected to their community and to stay in their current homes throughout the aging process. East Ballard residents are within the PNA Village boundaries and can join and volunteer.
Representatives of the PNA Village will be attending the May 20 EBCA monthly meeting at 7:30pm. Please contact Dawn Hemminger if you’d like to attend.
The PNA Village serves persons living between NW 50th St and NW 105th St and Aurora Ave to 15th Ave NW. There are two existing Villages in different areas of Seattle, with one more launching this Spring and more in the works! The National Village organization conference is in Seattle this Fall!
