Programs: Northaven is a vibrant affordable housing community in Seattle’s Northgate neighborhood, dedicated to meet the needs of people older in age. Northaven’s core programs are:

Independent living where 194 residents pay no more than 30% of their monthly adjusted income up to our very low market rate.

Assisted Living designed to remind, guide and assist residents in their activities of daily living. Northaven is one of very few facilities in Seattle to accept more than a handful of residents who rely on Medicaid-COPES, a state program that subsidizes less than 70% of assisted living care costs for those who have outlived their savings. Twenty-eight of our 40 residents rely on Medicaid-COPES – a 125% increase since opening our doors in 1992.

Northaven Foundation serves Northaven through philanthropic and stewardship endeavors to ensure affordable housing and needed services for older adults in our community. The Foundation raises support for assisted living uncompensated care and for critical services like transportation to and from medical appointments, and dental care.

Last November, Northaven’s newly formed Philanthropy Committee presented our first public fundraiser, Summit Celebration 2010, at the Mountaineers Club in Seattle. The event was small, but presented and followed-up with strategic intention – to gain new donors and increase our public awareness. We were grateful to have the support of David and Nole Ann Horsey (David is a local Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial cartoonist), who have long-time family ties with Northaven. Our goals were 75 guests and to raise a net of $3,000. We had 80 guests and raised a net of $7,919 for uncompensated care. We acquired 43 new donors. Our 2011 Event is scheduled for Friday, Oct. 21 and our goals are to double attendance and raise a net revenue of $16,000 to benefit uncompensated care. The committee is growing and is also presenting on June 4th at Northaven Retirement an outreach program, “Aging Gracefully: What we all need to know.” This seminar presents three panelists who specialize in elder care and who will address issues of health, finance and affects of recent State budget cuts to local services. We are consistently recruiting new volunteers to join us in our fundraising and community outreach efforts. Most recently, the Foundation received a $34,000 grant from the Employee Community Fund of Boeing Puget Sound for our Health & Wellness program.
