Who We Are
We are a non-profit organization that directs community efforts to allow people to remain living in their homes as they age. Neighbors helping neighbors stay neighbors. Our phone contact is (503) 308-8223.
Our village includes the communities of Lake Oswego, West Linn, and the Stafford Hamlet.
While we are an all-volunteer organization, there are costs associated with building and maintaining this community. We need to pay for required certifications, computer programs, printing, telephone to name just a few line items from our budget.
We are working hard to keep our membership fees affordable and charge $2 a day or less, depending on the kind of membership selected.

It takes a village to create a village.
It is only as strong as all of us make it.
As many other organizations and businesses in our communities, we are doing our part to help slow down the spread of the Coronavirus. For that reason, we have temporarily suspended our activities and events through the end of April. We are actively looking into developing different ways to connect people with each other. We'll keep you updated on any new developments.
We are building connections. Our members identify and help organize events for the Village. We continue to offer events for our larger community as well as specific events to meet member interests.
We are always updating our events calendar so check back often for the latest news.

The Vision and Mission of WLLO Village
Our vision is to continuously support and create better ways to age in community.
Our mission is to support people who choose to age in their own homes and communities by creating a network of trained volunteers, offering social events, and providing access to local resources and vetted service providers to help our members feel comfortable, supported and socially connected.
Aging in Community
Villages are being formed all across the US to promote better health, foster an active lifestyle and fight social isolation among the large and growing 60+ demographic.
The Villages movement found that better physical and mental health result from the increased community interaction and personalized support available to members of villages.
The concept of "Aging in Community" is not new. For an article published by the American Society on Aging that explains it in more details, click here.
