The PNA Village encompasses three primary program areas:

 Village

Network of Helpers – help with small tasks and larger projects from neighborly volunteers. All PNA Village staff and volunteers submit to a background check. 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 your changing needs, including a preferred vendor list, each vendor having been vetted by the PNA Village based on adopted PNA Village standards. Examples might include plumbers, electricians, painters, dog walkers, tech support or lawn mowing services. Selection of the service provider and payment for the service is the responsibility of the member.

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.

Services are provided by PNA staff and community volunteers, including PNA Village members.
