About Us

PNA’s mission is to build, engage and support our diverse community through programs, services and activities that connect neighbors and foster civic engagement.

Our Programs

With everything from a senior center and a tool lending library to the outrageously popular Bingo Karaoke and myriad classes, we turn strangers into neighbors and neighbors into community.

  • Classes and Events: Whether you live, work or play in the neighborhood, you’ll find classes and events to match or expand your interests
  • Community: Resources, programs and tools to make your life easier and better
  • Seniors: Inclusive and fun programs to keep you active and engaged, as well as age in your own home
  • Kids: Our programs help children thrive, including four parent-run cooperative preschools and a licensed child-care program and preschool at Whittier Elementary
  • Business: Supporting, networking and promoting your business

Have an idea for a new program, event, class, offering for the community or collaboration? Give us a shout. We’d love to talk!

Our History

The Phinney Neighborhood Association is one of Seattle’s best-known community organizations. Founded in 1980 and headquartered in a restored elementary school building, we operate five sites in North Seattle. We serve not only the PhinneyWood neighborhood (Phinney Ridge and Greenwood), but offer a wide variety of programs and activities open to everyone in the Puget Sound region.
