Previous volunteers have shared…
“Serving others through the Senior Companion program is easy.You have fun, spend time with your clients, and get a lot of support about how to do the volunteering as well.”
Another volunteer appreciates the opportunity to get out of their home and connect with a friend on a regular basis. Together, they both benefit from the outings and help each other be their best.

So far, cases of monkeypox in King County have been among men who reported close intimate contact with other men, sometimes with multiple partners. But others can become infected, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.
A limited supply of monkeypox vaccine is available locally, with more doses promised for later this Fall.
In King County, patients with flu-like or rash symptoms can be evaluated for free at the Public Health Sexual Health Clinic at Harborview, open M/W/TH/F, 7:30 am – 6:00 pm and Tuesday 9:30 am – 6:00 pm,(206) 744-3590.
