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. Our mission is to provide services to promote the independence of older individuals in our community by creating a network with resources to keep us confident at home and connected to community.

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.
