Northwest Neighbors Connecting

Mission: Our mission is to create a self-sustaining village of interdependent, diverse, caring individuals who give and receive services supporting their ability to age in place and enhancing their physical, emotional and social well-being.  The village achieves its mission through a social network of members and volunteers, through service-based committees, and through partnerships with professionals, businesses and community organizations.

 

Northwest Neighbors Connecting is part of the Supportive Community Network – an initiative through The Associated: Jewish Community Federation of Baltimore and CHAI to create a series of “villages” in Jewish Baltimore. To learn more about villages, check out the Village to Village Network (www.vtvnetwork.org).

 

NNC offers its members the opportunity to exchange volunteer services; social events, educational and cultural activities; and access to reliable, trustworthy professionals for those services beyond the abilities of a volunteer; and a chance to determine how the organization can best meet the needs of its members in support of their aging in place.
