Heritage House is a thriving non-profit assisted living community. We are so grateful for your support to help us create a warm and welcoming home filled with a wide range of activities for our residents.
Generous gifts from the community help us provide care for our residents and enhance their quality of life. In recent years, donated funds helped us buy computers for the residents’ computer lab, free weights and furniture for an outside seating area.
Donations also help fund our activity program featuring seasonal events, like a trip to the Ballard Locks in the summer, and our weekly Leisure Connections group which organizes activities like High Tea – complete with old China sets – and gardening on the front patio.
To learn more about how to make a tax deductible donation, call 206-382-4119.
