THE PURPOSE OF PARKLAND VILLAGE
- Help our neighbors age in place
- Build community
- Pay it forward
Our Volunteer Services
See the list of services below under "What is Parkland Village"! We are serving our elderly neighbors and those with disabilities. Get in touch with us at email@example.com 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.

It gives terminally ill people who have mental capacity to choose a legal means to end their lives with choice and dignity.
