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? Email the FESH Coordinator, Valerie Stewart, at email@example.com.

intergenerational relationships. We will be recruiting new students coming up in September for the new school year and would love to partner them up with YOU! Interested?

conducting a FOCUS group in July to find out what

PHOTO AND VIDEO CONVERSION | Photo and Video Conversion Services
An MSHS student has reached out to offer her skills of photo and/or video conversion services, free of charge, to local seniors! She works for her family business (https://www.tapedmemories.com/) and wants to provide this
service to seniors who might be interested in digitizing their memories so their families can have access, or for those who may be moving into a situation that does not allow them to take as many belongings with them. She would be doing this on her own, so that limits her ability, but she is interested in helping as many people as possible in her free time.
