Old Friends Club is a daytime program of supported social activities for older adults with cognitive challenges. Participants build friendships while enjoying activities in an environment that is comfortable for those with memory loss. They find ways to care for one another– connections that bring purpose and joy to life. Meanwhile, we offer family caregivers respite, support and education to promote their well-being and improve quality of life at home.

Old Friends Club is a non-residential daytime program for older adults with mild to moderate cognitive challenges. We make lives better through music, conversation, art, movement, and friendship.

Join us once a week to come alongside people with Alzheimer’s or other dementia to help them stay socially engaged and physically active (while their family caregivers get a break!) We laugh and learn and are surprised daily with the stories that bubble up.

Old Friends Club meets Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 9:30 to 2:30. The small group is up to 12 to 15 people per day, plus two staff and (ideally) two volunteers daily. We are looking for volunteers who will arrive at 9am to help set up, assist with the activities of the day, serve lunch, and help clean up at the end of the day. A six hour shift is great. Shorter shifts are also very helpful.

Help us create a welcoming environment of fun, respect and joy!

Our goal is to rescue, rehabilitate farm animals and to educate and inspire the public about their care and welfare. We provide a lifelong sanctuary for our adopted animals with veterinary care, proper feeding and environment enrichment, while giving people who might not have contact with farm animals a hands on experience. Our ultimate goal is to create and facilitate a program for disadvantage children and at-risk teens, as a way to connect and build emotional and mental well-being through the human-animal bond.

Rescue

Black Dawg Farm and Sanctuary will serve as a rescue agency receiving equines and farm animals from distressed environments sanctuary providing a lifelong home of care, compassion and enrichment.

Rehabilitation

Black Dawg Farm and Sanctuary’s program of rehabilitation will focus on each individual animal’s need for healthcare and medical treatment, nutrition and dietary needs, and careful handling and training, with the goal of restoring vitality, human trust, and the necessary socialization skills to participate in the farm animal community.

Education

Black Dawg Farm and Sanctuary will work to reduce equine and other farm animal abuse by educating the public on the consequences of neglect and improper care through our educational programs.

INSPIRE

Black Dawg Farm and Sanctuary will look to inspire children, teens and adults through our core values:

Fall City is blessed with an extensive and unique 520-page book on its history: Jack’s History of Fall City, published in 2006 by Jack E. Kelley. It brings together materials from over 15 years of research by Jack and Judy Kelley. During the three-year period it was being prepared for publication, the Fall City community shared family history with Jack, passed many things into his care, and stepped up to help with publication expenses. As the publication date neared, it seemed important to provide a way for this community enthusiasm for our local history to continue and to flourish. Thus, the decision was made to form the Fall City Historical Society. The Society was organized under the nonprofit umbrella of the Fall City Community Association in 2006.

CSER saves neglected and slaughter-bound horses in need
by rehabilitating, training, and placing them in a lifelong home.
Every horse we rescue receives medical attention to address all
immediate physical needs, and ongoing veterinary and farrier
care thereafter.
We create a tailored program to help each horse realize their full
potential and to address scars that cruelty and neglect has left
on their lives. The ultimate goal is to find a lifelong home that is
a perfect fit for each horse and their adoptive family. To date,
we have successfully rescued,rehabilitated, retrained, and
placed over 65 horses to permanent homes.

Volunteer drivers are needed for Senior Services’ Volunteer Transportation program throughout Sno-Valley . Using their own vehicles, volunteer drivers help older adults maintain their independence by taking them to necessary medical appointments. Clients appreciate their improved access to medical care, meaningful interactions with caring volunteers, and increased peace of mind. Unfortunately, the program does not have enough drivers to meet the demand for transportation from vulnerable King County residents. If you have the “drive” to help others, a clean driving record, and some daytime availability, call (206) 748-7588, email Hilary at hilaryc@seniorservices.org, or visit http://www.seniorservices.org/transportation to find out more. You can also read stories about the program on its blog: http://www.volunteertransportation.blogspot.com. Help seniors get “on the road” to fuller, healthier lives!

Wilderness Awareness School is a national not-for-profit environmental education organization established in 1983 and based in Duvall, Washington. We are dedicated to caring for the earth and our children by fostering understanding and appreciation of nature, community and self.

Our dynamic wilderness education courses combine ancient and modern ecological wisdom, and empower people of all ages to become stewards, mentors and leaders. Over the past two decades, Wilderness Awareness School has grown from a small group of visionary individuals to a leading national organization impacting the course of nature education, and inspiring many schools and individuals across the country and the world to share our teachings and curriculum.

Our mentoring approach honors individuality, encourages self-sufficiency in learning, and awakens a kinship with nature as it trains youth and adults to blend the awareness of a native tracker with the knowledge of a wildlife biologist. Our wilderness education courses draw on traditions from indigenous cultures world-wide, emphasizing nature as teacher, routines to enhance awareness, storytelling, self-motivated learning, and tracking as an interpretive tool.

We have weekly school year programs for ages 4-adult. Weekend classes for teen and adults. Summer camps for 4-17 year olds.

Echo Glen Children’s Center is a Washington State Juvenile Detention facility. There are 160 great kids as young as 11 and up to 20 years old. Most have been neglected or abused by parent(s) who may have also been neglected and abused. It seems to be a continuous cycle – one that Echo Glen staff is determined to break. These kids crave positive attention from adults and need good role models. Nearly all have dangerously low self-esteem.
Background checks are required and you must over 21 to interact with the youth, but prep work can be done by any age or group.
Here are opportunities to show these appreciative kids that you care (ascending order of time commitment):

– **Monthly Birthday Baking
– Help the kids bake cupcakes and create cards that are given to others-in-need for their monthly birthday celebration

Service Project Socials – Come chat with 3 or 4 youth while helping them with a project that helps others.

The Snoqualmie Valley Historical Museum, serving Fall City, Preston, Snoqualmie, North Bend, Cedar Falls and Snoqualmie Pass for nearly 50 years, came into being as the result of the initial work of one woman, Ada Snyder Hill. She came into the Valley in 1910 to teach school and early on began collecting the historic items that made up the exhibit she arranged for the 1939 celebration of the platting of North Bend. They were the nucleus for the present day collection that includes cherished artifacts and anecdotes from all corners of the Snoqualmie Valley.

The first home for the artifacts was a room in the North Bend High School where Mrs. Hill was a teacher. There, for nearly the next decade, she continued to add items as they were donated and, without help, catalogued them, arranged the displays and took visitors on tours.

The collection has since grown and was moved to a larger building. It is presently housed at 320 Bendigo Blvd S in North Bend in the Gardiner Weeks Memorial Park. The collection includes the ledger from the Meadowbrook Hotel, William Taylor’s hat and gun, the Fall City Study Club scrapbooks and memorabilia; among many amazing photographs and artifacts. A visit will give you a unique prospective on the evolving Snoqualmie Valley history.

The Snoqualmie Valley Community Network works locally to reduce youth substance abuse, to prevent teen suicide, to foster meaningful community connections with youth, and to coordinate civic engagement opportunities for youth & adults in the valley (such as the Be the Change Leadership event, Key Leaders Summit, the Healthy Community Coalition, & the Rise & Shine Volunteer Recognition breakfast). SVCN’s vision is a Snoqualmie Valley where ALL residents thrive!

Young Life doesn’t start with a program. It starts with adults who are concerned enough about kids to go to them, on their turf and in their culture, building bridges of authentic friendship. These relationships don’t happen overnight — they take time, patience, trust and consistency.

So Young Life leaders log many hours with kids — where they are, as they are. We listen to their stories and learn what’s important to them because we genuinely care about their joys, triumphs, heartaches and setbacks.

We believe in the power of presence. Kids’ lives are dramatically influenced when caring adults come alongside them, sharing God’s love with them. Because their Young Life leader believes in them, they begin to see that their lives have great worth, meaning and purpose.

This is the first step of a lifelong journey; the choices they make today, based upon God’s love for them, will have an impact on future decisions — careers chosen, marriages formed and families raised — all ripples from the time when a Young Life leader took time to reach out and enter their world.
