THE PURPOSE OF PARKLAND VILLAGE

  • Help our neighbors age in place
  • Build community
  • Pay it forward

 

We are Now Offering Full Array of Volunteer Services

See the list of services below under "What is Parkland Village"!  Now we are serving our elderly neighbors and those with disabilities.  Get in touch with us at info@parklandvillageabq.org if you would like to become a member of Parkland Village, become a Parkland Village volunteer, or both.

People will need to become Parkland Village members to receive services.  However, people can become members to support the Village, whether or not they currently need services.  Members must live in the service area (primarily the Parkland Hills and Southeast Heights neighborhoods) or, on a case-by-case basis, close to the boundaries of the service area.  The annual dues are $150 for an individual and $200 for a household.  However, financial assistance is available for those who cannot afford the regular dues.  For the safety of members and volunteers, both must be fully vaccinated and have received at least one booster.  Both must follow Parkland Village Covid protocols.  You can find the membership handbook here and the membership registration form here.

Recording of July 13, 2021 forum: End of Life Options Act

The New Mexico Villages Network held a Zoom forum in July on the End of Life Options Act, which was recently passed by the New Mexico legislature and signed by our governor.  It gives terminally ill people who have mental capacity to choose a legal means to end their lives with choice and dignity.  You can review the recording of this forum by clicking on the following link: https://tinyurl.com/2p9a9886  After you click on the link, enter the following passcode: k!u7Df^1  Note: To make sure you get the passcode correctly, copy and paste it.

WHAT IS PARKLAND VILLAGE?

The primary goal of Parkland Village is to organize a network of volunteers to assist our older or disabled neighbors.  Planned services include: 

  • Transportation to medical appointments, shopping, church services, and senior activities;
  • Light household tasks (including yard work);
  • Assistance with computers and other technology;
  • Community events, friendly phone calls and home visits.

Through our interactions, we get to know each other, establish friendships, and work towards building community.


Parkland Village is part of and supported by the Village to Village Network.

Parkland Village is a 501(c)(3) non-profit. Your donations to the Village are tax deductible.


We plan to begin providing services to our neighbors in August, 2022. This is a great time to join us!  

We need volunteers to: 

  • Help our members age in place.
  • Serve on our committees. (Fundraising, Volunteer Coordination, Recruitment and Outreach, Member Services, Events, and Resource Evaluation and Coordination, IT, Accounting).
  • Spark fresh energy and ideas.

While our in-person activities are almost entirely on hold during the Covid-19 pandemic and the time frame for the start of the full array of services is delayed, we continue to organize and plan to organize online events of interest to residents.  We are currently offering several "safe" services: yardwork, friendly calls, and foodbank deliveries.
