About NEST

NEST is a “virtual village” located in Northeast Seattle that also serves as the area’s senior center. We serve the 13 neighborhoods east of I-5, north of the Montlake Ship Canal and south of NE Northgate Way/NE 110th St. Villages are vibrant, intergenerational communities building connections between neighbors. With 180 members, 170 volunteers, over 400 member gatherings, and 200 events open to the public each year, NEST is one of the nation’s most active villages. Learn more.

Our Vision

To build and sustain a northeast Seattle community where neighbors engage with and support one another through the transitions of aging.

Take a few minutes to hear from Terry B. about his experience with NEST, including NEST’s low-vision support group.  NEST offers support groups based on member needs to keep older adults healthy, strong and engaged.
