Eastside neighbors network (ENN)
"Aging Better Together"
So you're healthy and independent, and
you want to stay in your home as long as possible, but
a lot of your friends and neighbors have moved away.
Or you need a little help now and then
But you don't want to impose on your busy adult children.
You'd like to make new friends but where to begin?
Or you enjoy helping others and would like to do more of that
but you have not found a way to contribute
that uses your talents and fits your schedule.
ENN may be a good fit for you.
We provide social engagement and volunteer support
for independent older adults,
and meaningful opportunities for caring volunteers.
What our Members & Volunteers say
Social Support: [Board member/Volunteer] was so kind and comforting when I talked with her yesterday! And now this loving message from you! I'm literally sitting here moved to tears over so much sympathy and encouragement. You are already beaming to me what is most strengthening--friendship! ~ ENN member on receiving get-well message from ENN
Service: Transportation: I just wanted to say that [the ENN volunteer] was terrific! She dropped me off in front of the building but then noticed that the door to the lobby was locked and came back to help me sort that out. I had planned to take the bus home but she insisted on coming back to get me after my appointment. That was very kind of her. Very good experience! ~ ENN member
Service: Light household/Yard help: [The volunteer] did a great job! She cleaned up an area under some fir trees, raked and picked up all the pine cones, etc. And it wasn't easy on a warm day in the sun with a face mask! ~ ENN member
[The member] was very sweet and I was able to complete a lot! I ended up spending and extra hour, but it was a beautiful day and really fun! ~ ENN Volunteer
NOTE: Rebuilding our volunteer network post-Covid will take time.
