"Empowering older adults to thrive in the homes and neighborhoods they love."

About Us

River West Village! has a vision of building a community-based network whose purpose is to coordinate services for older adult SW Portland area residents to help them age in place.

With your involvement, members could soon have help to stay in their homes.

  • Access to “one call does it all” support and information.
  • Assistance from screened and trained volunteers.
  • Approved home maintenance and personal home care services often at a discount.
  • Social, educational and cultural programs.

Currently in the planning phase, River West Village is a group of dedicated and active volunteers in SW Portland area. We are working to make the Village model a reality in SW Portland and surrounding areas. You, too, can be part of our dynamic planning process.

The River West Village! Planning Group is working to build a successful Village.

  • Developing policies, procedures, and an effective infrastructure.
  • Marketing the Village to raise awareness.
  • Building a strong volunteer base.
  • Conducting community needs assessments
  • Researching current services and identifying partners
  • Raising seed money for current operating costs.
  • Identifying an operating budget and raising funds for launch
