The national Village movement initially formed to allow seniors to confidently age in their homes through a network of neighborly support.
Rainy Day Village Network, based on this concept of “neighbors helping neighbors,” will offer support to
people of all ages in North Tillamook County on the Oregon Coast.
Over the next few months as we define our organization, we will be introducing Rainy Day Village Network through a series of gatherings in the community to:

Rainy Day Village Network is a local, all volunteer organization, working to become a program of Villages NW, a our regional, Portland-based organization.
We are currently under the umbrella of local Fulcrum Community Resources, a 501c3 tax exempt organization so all contributions are tax deductible.
Over the past year we have visited with, and learned from successful village programs across the country.
We are in the very early stages of development, currently gathering support in North Tillamook County.
As the project unfolds we look forward to setting our “launch date."
Members will pay a small monthly fee which covers our insurance, phone, website, vetting of volunteers and membership in Villages NW.
Volunteers provide the services. Because everyone has something to offer, members may be both providers and/or receivers of services as their needs change.
Such services could include:
In order to keep fees low and to make membership available regardless of ability to pay, we are seeking additional financial support through sponsors and members.
In the meantime we need $5000 for the 2018-19 fiscal year for outreach costs (website, mailing list, printing and venues) as well as for our Village membership.
We’ve suggested several levels of support, but of course any amount will delight us.
