Boomers are rewriting the script on aging, and throughout the U.S., "Virtual Villages" are setting the stage.

Eastside Neighbors Network, like the other 300+ virtual villages across the US, is built on friendship and mutual support to make it easier and more enjoyable for seniors to remain in their homes. 

Being part of a village offers many of the benefits of a retirement community without the need to relocate. Members of ENN enjoy:

  • Member-inspired social, cultural, and informational activities
  • Volunteer help including local transportation
  • Volunteer opportunities
  • Access to service providers 
  • Information and referrals for local agencies
