Parkland Village does not currently have members, other than Board members and committee members. Memberships will begin when we begin to offer volunteer services, as outlined in the home page of this website. We had been hoping to offer services some time in 2020, but the Covid pandemic has put that on hold. We continue to organize so that we will be in a position to offer services once the pandemic is over. Once we do have members, members will be charged dues, which will be set by the Board in the future, and there will be a sliding scale for people who cannot afford the standard dues.

However, we have decided that there are several services we will offer during the pandemic once we identify people who need those services. Membership will not be required to receive those services prior to the time we begin our fill array of services. The services we will offer during the pandmic are:
We also encourage residents of Parkland Hills and Southeast Heights neighborhoods to contact us and indicate their interest as potential members and/or potential volunteers. If you provide us with your contact information (firstname.lastname@example.org), we will send you updates, newsletters, and invitations to online events. We would love to have your name, e-mail address (if you have one), address, and phone number, or any of that contact information that you feel comfortable sharing with us. If you wish, you could also let us know what services you anticipate needing for yourself or a family member. It is possible that, at some point, we will be in a position to offer services that do not require in-person contact. If you want to volunteer in the future, you could let us know what kinds of volunteering you would like to be able to do.
In addition, we encourage people to volunteer now, not to work providing services directly to residents, but rather to help us do the organizing work we need to do to move us closer to being able to provide those services. We could use help with outreach and recruiting, website development/maintenance, fundraising, accounting, and online event programming. Perhaps you have other ideas we haven't thought of.
