To build and sustain a northeast Seattle community where neighbors engage with and support one another through the transitions of aging.
NEST is a 501(c)(3) non-profit grassroots community in Northeast Seattle, founded in 2009. By providing a strong support network through volunteers and trusted business referrals, older residents can stay in the homes of their choosing and stay engaged in the neighborhoods they love, for as long as possible. NEST serves the neighborhoods north of the Montlake Ship Canal, south of NE Northgate Way & NE 110th Street, west of Lake Washington, and east of Interstate-5. NEST is based on the national “virtual village model.” Currently, there are over 300 virtual villages actively serving across the United States and many more in the works.
