  • Feeling isolated? PNA Village can help

    Feeling isolated? PNA Village can help

    The PNA Village program has been supporting our older neighbors since 2012, and amidst the pandemic, is providing essential services to keep Village members connected to the community and safe at home. As we enter winter, we are increasingly concerned—not about how people will get their groceries or prescriptions; we’ve got that figured out—but how people will get through these darker days while coping with isolation. The Village now has a free option called “Friend of the Village” specifically for anyone who is struggling with isolation but may not need other volunteer services at this time. Membership includes access to all Village online events and activities, weekly check-in calls, outdoor distanced visits, and a growing list of ways to connect neighbor to neighbor....

  • Connecting to community: Meet Randi and Dennis

    Connecting to community: Meet Randi and Dennis

    We’ve told you many of the things we’ve worked on during this unusual year – from childcare to meals delivered and served. Before we close the books on 2020, we want to share with you one last story – one that reaches to the heart of the PNA: connecting with each other and building a community. Meet Randi and her husband Dennis, who just moved to Seattle in April... "With the pandemic, making new friends has been a challenge. Folks you meet on the street hustle by at a social distance of six feet. Neighborhood hang-outs like churches, libraries, and coffee shops that would normally serve as gathering spots for long-time Seattleites and newcomers alike, are closed due to lock-down. But a true bright spot has been the Phinney Neighborhood Association's Greenwood Senior Center with its range of programming, delightful staff and volunteers. Dennis and I are active participants in several of the zoom-based activities and feel that we have made friends even though we have met none of them in person."...
