About Us:

A 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.

Contact Us
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.
