Eastside Village is hiring!
Do you like working closely with seniors and the volunteers who make their lives better? Eastside Village is looking for a part-time Office Manager to carry out our day-to-day operations and keep our vibrant organization running smoothly. The position is open as of Sept. 26 and will remain open until we fill it. Find out more here!

Eastside Village is part of a growing national movement enabling older adults to age at home and in their community safely, affordably, happily, and healthily for as long as they choose. This kind of village is not a building, real estate development, or retirement community. It is a coordinated network of volunteer and professional services.  In short, Eastside Village is a PLAN, not a PLACE.

Launched in October 2015, Eastside Village serves 23 Portland neighborhoods on the east side of Portland, Oregon, from the Willamette River to 122nd Avenue, and from I-84 to the city’s southern boundary.
