We celebrate life by enriching the lives of older adults.
At Pines Village we pride ourselves on our Be the Difference culture, which is driven by a passion for serving the residents, visitors, and staff of Pines Village as well as the greater Valparaiso community. Yes, we work hard but the work we do is rewarding on so many levels. And we always make time for fun, laughs, and of course employee recognition.
We are a dedicated crew; if you think you’ve got what it takes to Be the Difference and want work for Porter County’s only nonprofit retirement community, we urge you to check out our available positions.
