We are a local, volunteer-based, non-profit organization founded to empower members of our community to continue living in our homes, where we want to be as we age.

Today is Giving Tuesday!
These many months have been difficult for all. We have found safe ways to provide key services to members who needed them, stayed in close touch to help each other avoid isolation, and moved our Network’s programming to zoom. We also have found that connection with others is crucial to our well being, probably more than ever before. As we start the last month of 2020 we are making plans and looking forward. At some points of this year that seemed hard to fathom, but now, there is a glimmer of light. 
 
Please consider a donation to help us continue our fine efforts.
 
We are thankful to our members, volunteers, donors and all of those that support our organization!

Our group came together because we want to stay in our own
homes as we get older, and we want others in Yakima and Selah 
to have the option to stay in their homes and thrive.  
We are creating a network to make that possible.
