What Can You Do To Help?
Sound Generations is requesting community aid.
As we work to slow the spread of COVID-19, the Governor has announced mandatory two-week closures for all restaurants, bars, and entertainment and recreational facilities, as well as a national ban on gatherings of 10 or more. While this decision will help to reduce the spread of the coronavirus, we’ve also heard from constituents who are wondering how this will impact their job or their business.
The situation is evolving, and information may change, but there are some resources we can share now:
- City of Seattle resources (B&O tax deferment, small business stabilization fund, non-profit support, coronavirus resources).
Q&A and Staying Up To Date
The Washington State Department of Health has established a call center to address questions from the public. If you have questions about what is happening in Washington, or how the virus is spread, please call 1-800-525-0127.
Phone lines are currently staffed from 6 AM to 10 PM seven days a week. Please note that this call center cannot access COVID-19 testing results. For testing inquiries or results, please contact your health care provider.
We are Sound Generations
Serving Our Community For Over 50 Years
Established in 1967, Sound Generations is a comprehensive non-profit organization that serves older adults and adults with disabilities in King County.

Our organization is the largest provider of comprehensive services for aging adults and their loved ones in King County.
We support people on their aging journey through community connections and accessible services.
We envision a just society where aging adults and those who care about them can live their best lives.
We strive to expand the provision of food security, transportation, health & wellness, and assistance services to underserved and marginalized populations. Our programs and affiliated service sites provide accessible resources and services across King County.
We are committed to helping everyone, including low income communities and people of color. We work to ensure people feel included and respected in a community that affirms aging.
Through The Eyes of a Service Provider
Being a driver for Sound Generations’ Meals on Wheels program is so much more than transporting meals. Julian Montgomery sees himself as a therapist, counselor, friend, and a family member for his clients as well. Learn more about our Meals On Wheels program.
Connecting Communities Through Transportation
Transportation is a vital service for older adults that seek to maintain their independence. Hyde Shuttle drivers and volunteer drivers help aging adults get to and from errands, attend activities and medical appointments, and remain connected to their communities.
