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 firstname.lastname@example.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.

WHAT IS PARKLAND VILLAGE?
The primary work of Parkland Village is the organization of a network of volunteers who help our neighbors so that they can better age in place in their homes.
Our village community serves all elders and persons with disabilities who reside in our service area regardless of gender, gender identity, sexual and affectional orientation, race, ethnicity, creed, religion or political affiliation.
- Transportation to medical appointments, shopping, church services, senior activities, etc.;
- Light household tasks (including yard work);
- Assistance with computers and other technology;
- Community events and friendly visits to help prevent a sense of isolation.
Through our interactions, we get to know each other, establish friendships, and work towards building community.
