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.
We envision strangers becoming neighbors, and neighbors becoming a welcoming and caring community.
A community organization founded in 1980, the PNA offers diverse programs, services, and activities at four sites in Northwest Seattle, reaching more than 20,000 people a year.
The PNA brings together community for lifelong engagement—from parent-infant classes to our award-winning memory loss programs for seniors and their caregivers—and for all ages in between.
Headquartered in a historic former elementary school, currently has about 60 full- and part-time staff, more than 1,500 volunteers, and an annual budget of $2.5 million.
The PNA is known for our broad spectrum of quality programming and our capacity to be nimble, creative, and collaborative. (See the "Our Programs" tab).
The PNA is financially stable with diverse funding sources and broad community support that keeps us independent and accountable to our community. We creatively leverage our resources by partnering with community groups, organizations, local government, and businesses.
We are good stewards of our Phinney Center and Greenwood Senior Center campuses, with a focus on accessibility, historic preservation, and environmental stewardship.
We are deeply grateful to members of the PNA community that have volunteered, donated, and taken part in the PNA's 41-year history. We are also thankful for everyone's continued support as we work to keep our neighborhood safe, healthy, and connected.
