Sky Valley Senior and Community Center
The Sky Valley Senior and Community Center started with a group of volunteers.
A group of seniors living in the Sultan community wanted a place to come together and socialize. They began hosting lunches and monthly pancake breakfasts for each other and the community. Using the historic and distinctive Volunteers of America Western Washington A-frame building, they quickly expanded and brought in activities like sewing, painting, Bingo, and more. Using the expansive grounds on the VOAWW campus, even classes like hunter’s education courses were offered.
After closing for a long renovation project in 2018 to integrate the Sultan Food Bank into the building, the seniors stuck together and consistently gathered for bi-weekly potlucks at an alternative location. With the reopening of the A-frame building in early 2019, a thriving Sky Valley Senior and Community Center emerged. With a mission of providing a safe, stable, and heathy place for people to engage, the center offers an array of fun activities and services to both seniors and the wider Sky Valley community.
The Sky Valley Senior and Community Center also gathers food to support their daily meals and pancake breakfasts, including the Sky Valley Elderly Nutrition (SEND) program, which provides food delivery for isolated and homebound seniors.
