Will you be my Neighbor?

We are excited that you are interested in becoming a member of WLLO Village!

The most significant benefit of joining WLLO Village is that you will be connected to a new supportive group of neighbors in your own community -- neighbors who will support your needs on an ongoing basis.

We define support in two ways:

  • As hands-on services designed to help you manage your day-to-day activities and chores.

  • As frequent social activities that help you stay connected, meet old friends and make new ones.

Membership Fees and Services

Our membership fees are priced based on the kind of membership you pick, and whether it is for an individual or a household. You can either pay in one annual payment or in twelve monthly installments. If you prefer the latter, it has to be in the form of automated withdrawals from a bank account to cut down on expenses.

Please keep in mind that as an all-volunteer organization, every service is subject to volunteer availability.

Becoming a Member

Like in any good relationship, it has to work for both sides. We have adopted guidelines that have proven to work in other Villages. Becoming a member is a deliberate process that consists of 4 steps.

Step 1: Complete a member questionnaire and send it to the WLLO office. You can request that one will be mailed to you by calling this number: (503) 308-8223.

Step 2: A WLLO volunteer comes to your home to chat, get to know you better, and let you know more about our Village and what we are able to provide for our members. We want to make sure that we are able to meet your expectations and that you feel comfortable with our volunteer concept, as well as the social and services we are able to provide. We want to make sure you understand the benefits and limitations and that we are a match.

Step 3: Sign the membership agreement and other relevant papers.

Step 4: Make the necessary arrangements to pay for your membership

We organize new member meetings on a regular basis to help ease new members into our community and help them meet like-minded individuals.
