Looking Ahead: Keeping NEST Strong

Our Growing Effort. NEST is now over 190 members and 230 volunteers strong. With a monthly average of over 600 volunteer hours, 120 rides, and 35 programs and events, we can rest assured that the NEST is working.

Help keep our neighbors independent, active, and connected
and ensure no one in northeast Seattle grows older alone.
