Phinney Neighborhood Association Mission

The mission of the Phinney Neighborhood Association (PNA) is to build, engage, and support our diverse community through programs, services, and activities that connect neighbors and foster civic engagement. 


Position Overview

The PNA is committed to building a culture of equity and inclusion, believing that a diversity of staff, Board, and programming is essential to achieving our mission. We are looking for someone who is willing to work with and challenge this organization and the community to be our most respectful, accepting, and sympathetic selves.  


The PNA Senior Programs Assistant supports two programs at the PNA focused on senior populations, the Greenwood Senior Center (GSC) and the PNA Village. The GSC is an inclusive community that provides social, physical, and educational activities focused around the needs of older adults. The PNA Village is an aging in community program that empowers people to remain in their homes and neighborhoods while staying active and engaged while they age.


The Senior Programs Assistant works closely with seniors in the community to understand their unique set of needs and ways they can connect to PNA Senior Programs. To better serve seniors in the community at large, this position will work with the GSC Director to identify, develop and promote new social connectivity strategies.
