About usN4's programs serve a variety of needs in the community, including supporting people with intellectual, developmental, and physical disabilities, people living with dementia, and their family care partners. N4 was designed using the senior village model, although with a greater focus on social equity within its diverse programs and projects. By valuing the assets and gifts of each person served and organizational partner, N4 is shaping the culture in Northern Nevada to ensure everyone has full community access. N4 is solution-driven and committed to addressing social isolation within the most vulnerable populations to improve health and wellbeing. Current programs include: • Community Care provides people with disabilities and older adults in-home and community-focused services that increase engagement by using a person/family-centered approach to care planning. Types of services offered include respite services for family care partners, companion services, personal care, social, recreational and educational activities, care consultation/options counseling, and opportunities for civic engagement and self-advocacy. • N4 Connect helps people with disabilities and adults over 60 access affordable supplemental transportation with a 50% discount on Lyft rides. N4 Connect members receive up to $160 worth of Lyft rides per person each month and have the option of learning how to use Lyft with their personal smartphone, or by contacting the N4 office to schedule a concierge Lyft ride if they do not own a smartphone. Coming in May 2020, N4 will provide wheelchair accessible transportation in the N4 Connect program using a new 12-passenger van. • The Time Exchange is a way for people to give and receive services without exchanging money. When a member provides a service to another member, one hour, or one time credit, is earned for each hour spent providing the service. Members can then exchange their time credits for an hour of service from someone else. One hour of service provided during an exchange is valued the same, no matter the type of work. • The Volunteer Village builds partnerships with local organizations. N4 members can opt into the volunteer pool without enrolling in the time exchange to help people become more comfortable with serving their community. This past year, more than 300 community volunteers have contributed over 1,000 hours helping various service organizations in Northern Nevada.
