We are grateful to Tesse for her many contributions to the community, including being the founding mother of Arbor West Neighbors. She was a visionary, leading efforts for seniors, bringing others together to help make it a reality. She served on our Board and the Membership Committee.

Tesse was a gracious and thoughtful presence in all she chose to contribute her time to. We trust she is at peace. We will miss her.

Arbor West Neighbors

Arbor West Neighbors (AWN) is a grassroots organization of neighbors in Oak Park, River Forest, Forest Park and Austin connected to support and enrich aging through community building and advocacy. 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. 

We are an all-volunteer 501(c)3 organization with over 120 members.
