Our Impact

Founded nearly 20 years ago with the spirit of community volunteerism at its core.
Providing Support & Assistance Needed for Seniors to Remain Independent

Originally called “Faith in Action,” in September 2011 we changed our name to Eastside Friends of Seniors, to better reflect who we are and who we serve. This name has fostered our ability to grow and better serve the elderly in our community. Eastside Friends of Seniors has served hundreds of elderly since its conception.

Today, Eastside Friends of Seniors serves individuals who live in Issaquah and Sammamish. We also have some clients in parts of Snoqualmie Valley and Bellevue. We mobilize volunteers to provide essential assistive services, enabling our clients to live independently and with dignity in the comfort of their own homes. Eastside Friends of Seniors is able to meet its mission by partnering with other organizations in the community.

Eastside Friends of Seniors engages local service organizations, faith congregations, and community members in volunteer service while our “partners” and “referral partners” enable us to reach out to even more seniors in need.
