The Veterans, Seniors, and Human Services Levy (VSHSL) is up for renewed voter consideration in King County this August and our aging neighbors need our support more than ever right now. If the Levy is not approved, it will expire in December 2023. The Levy has funded a wide range of programs that support veterans, expand accessibility for older adults, and strengthen communities while building resilience through connections to senior centers, behavioral health treatment, and other services.
Here are just a few examples of how Levy funds have allowed us to impact, nourish, and care for the well-being of our aging neighbors in King County:
- “Meals on Wheels has been a lifesaver to me. It gives me a house full of meals and has helped to give me a sense of safety in my life. Thank you.”
- “My counselor helped me plan what I can do to head off anxiety. Taking better care of myself is key to dealing with my chronic pain & anxiety. I can now do things to better help myself every day.”
- “I wouldn’t know all that I do now without Caregiver Support’s help and knowledge. Thank you for helping me even when I wasn’t sure what I needed before my mom’s condition turned worse.”
