NNC is a Thriving and Supportive Community

August 7, 2023

This past fiscal year was a busy one for CHAI’s Northwest Neighbors Connecting (NNC), fulfilling its vision “to be an engaged, diverse community of interdependent members who support each other towards healthy aging.” The dynamic group of 120 older adults participated in over 200 activities and events and made more than 3,000 friendly check-in calls to one another. At its core, NNC helps members create social connections and support one another. Recently, a member who was alone at home, took a fall, injuring her arm. Instead of calling 911, she called her friend from NNC. Shortly after, two NNC members arrived at her home, drove her to the hospital and stayed with her until the arm was set. Then, they arranged a schedule of drivers to take her to physical therapy until she completed treatment. CHAI is proud to support NNC as NNC supports its members.
