Villages NW is an important part of the nationwide Village Movement (details) in the U.S. as it has developed in the region around Portland, Oregon. We have 10 local Villages (list) in the immediate Portland Metro area, and one along the North Oregon Coast, empowering older adults to remain in charge of their lives and flourish as they take on the future together. Our mission: “To create dynamic, intentionally inclusive, caring communities that connect, engage, and support older adults as they maintain active and purposeful lives.”
