Given the updates from Governor Inslee, NNN Services and activities continue to be suspended until King County and Snohomish County enter Phase 2 of "Safe Start" guidelines. We continue to stay in contact via phone visits and some essential services. Call or email if you need something, and we'll look for ways to help. 
If you need food or medicine, please call 253-237-2848 or email
and we will find a way to make that happen.

Moving toward Phase 2
As many Counties across Washington State move to "Safe Start: - for Covid-19 Phase 2, we're all in an adjustment phase to what that means for us.
Some are anxiously waiting to get out there, while others are concerned of potential increase in cases.
Give yourself the time and permission to follow how you are most comfortable moving beyond Phase 1.
It's OK! We're all in this together.
Masking Up = Here for a While!
If you need a mask (many stores in King/Snohomish county require a mask for entry), we have you covered! Contact the Services team and we'll deliver masks on your doorstep or via mail. If you'd like, we can even have an outdoor porch visit.
