A village is not a place.

It's a community made up of neighbors and friends.

When Home is Where Your Heart Is…..

If you love the view from your own back porch, then Rivers East Village is for you. We're dedicated to giving our members more freedom to enjoy life on their own terms as they grow older.


Meet New People & Make Friend

Coffee & happy hours, patio gatherings & potlucks, book club, game nights, and more.


We’re Neighbors Helping Neighbors

We are a coalition of active volunteers, and partner agencies providing a wide range of services and assistance to support our members' independence as they age.

Member of the Village NW and Village to Village Networks

As part of the growing, grassroots network, we have access to resources and tools that strengthen our ability to serve our members and enhance our effectiveness. Although the village "model" is different from one community to the next, they are all designed to provide members with the option of "aging in place" -  without having to rely on friends and family for help with routine tasks or transportation needs. 

Member-driven, Self-Funded & Non-profit

As a program of Villages NW, we are a 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization. As an all-volunteer organization with no permanent paid staff, allows us to keep membership fees as low as possible while covering operational expenses.
