Engagement in the Broader Community
Horizon House has always been involved in the community beyond our doors. We seek to support organizations whose programs and services align with our mission and make a difference locally. The common thread among the organizations we support with grants, sponsorships, and memberships is their commitment to enhancing the lives of older adults.
In addition to financial support, Horizon House residents and staff volunteer their time to an amazing variety of efforts, from organizing winter blanket drives, to feeding and clothing the homeless, to supporting the development of a Seattle village that helps neighboring seniors age in place. We also open our campus to many nonprofit community groups, including the Parkinson’s Support Group, the League of Women Voters, the Northwest Center for Creative Aging, and Virginia Mason Hospital.
