About Village Without Walls

Village Without Walls is an inclusive, interdependent community where everyone can age in place and live in homes of their choice safely. Whether you choose to live in a single family home, a townhouse or condo, an apartment, or a senior retirement center you are eligible to be a member of the Village.

Village Without Walls is part of Villages NW, a network of Villages in the Portland metro area. Our local network is connected to a thriving nationwide movement of over 200 Villages providing programs and services to enable seniors to remain comfortably and securely in their own home. 

What is Village Without Walls 

It’s something new in western Washington County, Oregon. Our service area includes Hillsboro, Aloha, Cornelius, Forest Grove and the rural areas served by those cities. 

Village Without Walls is not a PLACE; it’s a PLAN that encourages neighbors to help neighbors in their community. This kind of Village is not a building or real estate development or retirement community. Picture an organized network of volunteers and lower-cost services that support Village members by doing tasks necessary to maintain quality of life in their own homes.
