About Us

Independent Seniors Network is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization supporting aging in place. Our funding is provided by membership dues, as well as donations, grants, and fundraising.


The mission of Independent Seniors Network is to support and empower seniors in the greater Portland area who wish to remain living in their own homes as long as possible. Volunteers provide services, social connections, and activities for members, helping both members and volunteers to maintain active, social, safe, and independent lives.  Diversity and inclusion are woven into the fabric of our core values and help Independent Seniors Network to deliver our mission throughout the community.
