We are a local, volunteer-based, non-profit organization founded to empower members of our community to continue living in our homes, where we want to be as we age. Our mission is to provide services to promote the independence of older individuals in our community by creating a network with resources to keep us confident at home and connected to community.
HomeOur Model

Yakima and Selah Neighbors’ Network is modeled on Beacon Hill Village, a member-based nonprofit started in 2002 in a middle-class Boston neighborhood. The goal of the Beacon Hill Village was to help residents age in place, in the homes and community they loved, by fostering both independence and interdependence. 

Beacon Hill has since been duplicated in hundreds of towns and neighborhoods across the US. Like most Villages, we offer three major benefits to members—volunteer help for minor needs, connection to trusted businesses when paid professionals are required, and group social and educational activities.

Work on Yakima and Selah Neighbors’ Network started in October of 2016 and we launched April 2019. 

Yakima & Selah Neighbors’ Network / YESneighbors is a part of the National Village Movement. Villages are not places
but carefully planned networks

 There are about 16 other villages already formed or in development in Washington and 350 Villages  already thriving in communities
around the country.

Yakima & Selah Neighbors' Network
 is a member of Village to Village Network, the national organization that helps Villages develop and thrive by providing expert guidance, resources and support.
