COVID Vaccination Update: on March 1, in conjunction with the county, Sno-Valley Senior Center has lifted the vaccine requirements to participate in our programs. We will follow King County for mask mandates as well.

The King County Veterans, Seniors and Human Services Levy connects service members and veterans, residents age 55 or older, and vulnerable populations to programs and services that help them live healthy, productive and meaningful lives. It helps individuals and families transition to affordable housing, get job training, find employment, receive behavioral healthy treatment, and more. 

The Far East Senior Hub (FESH) includes the Sno-Valley Senior Center, Issaquah Senior Center and Mt. Si Senior Center and we are partnering with a range of providers to expand the reach of our services to seniors who are isolated and a broader diversity of elders.

Below you’ll find information about upcoming FESH presentations and events. Questions? or wish to register? Email the FESH Coordinator, Valerie Stewart, at valeries@soundgenerations.org.
