Arbor West Neighbors (AWN) is a grassroots organization of neighbors in Oak Park, River Forest, and Forest Park connected to support and enrich aging through community building and advocacy. We are an all-volunteer 501(c)3 organization with over 120 members.

 

Our mission is to empower adults to thrive as we age in community. Our vision is to build a multi-ethnic, multicultural community where all older adults are valued, age with dignity, and enjoy opportunities for growth and engagement. ​

 

Our strategy consists of three pillars:

Advocacy - being at the table representing older adults

Connections - regular engagement with peers and building relationships beyond AWN to amplify our impact

Resources - provide links to information and services relevant to older adults
