How Can We Help?

COVID-19 Update

NEST has always been concerned for the health and safety of our members, volunteers, and the community we serve- but most especially during the recent COVID-19 pandemic. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to the NEST Office via email or at (206) 525-6378.

If you are…

… a member concerned for your safety and trying to practice social distancing:
As the recent outbreak of Coronavirus continues to spread, we want you to know that NEST has your back. We are here to support you in any way that we can as we navigate this time together. NEST is working on creating programming during this unprecedented event that will help keep you engaged in your community with appropriate social distancing measures and other strategies to keep you healthy and safe. We will be making phone calls and sending out emails to keep you informed about upcoming virtual events. We encourage you to read through our page on social distancing and COVID-19 to learn more about what that means for you and your loved ones. You might also want to look at our Resources page for information on how restaurants and grocery stores are here to help during this time.

… a community or family member in the area who wants to know how they can volunteer:
Thank you so much for thinking of us. We cannot express enough how important the support of our community is; most especially in this unprecedented time. Please visit our volunteer page to learn more about opportunities to help our more vulnerable members. If you have specific questions, feel free to reach out to our Director of Operations at

… a community or family member who wants to help from afar:
Your financial support has never been more critical. Please consider donating to support our ALL IN FOR NEST campaign as we try and create innovative solutions to keep our members active, engaged, and independent without sacrificing their health or safety. This crisis is taking a toll on the aging population across the world and NEST is just at the beginning of what could turn into a long uphill battle. We understand that this is a tough time for a lot of people for a lot of reasons and we only ask for your financial support if you are able. If you have any questions or would like to make sure your donation supports a certain program or service offered by NEST, feel free to contact our Communications and Development Manager at

… a senior in the area who would like to learn more about NEST and how we may be able to support you:
