Senior Center Spotlight: Patti

For many seniors in downtown Seattle, the Pike Market Senior Center is their home for the holidays. After moving to Seattle from Spokane, Patti (pictured right) found herself alone, living in a shelter, and seeking a community for support.

Following up on a lead from the Belltown Community Center, Patti visited the Pike Market Senior Center and she immediately felt at home. “I found a really positive support group here at the Senior Center,” says Patti.

For Patty, the Senior Center is about friendships and feeling connected, and much more. “The Senior Center staff has been wonderful. Their social workers connected me with housing. Their free breakfasts and lunches help supplement my diet and the cooking classes help me cook more healthfully. They also helped me with my resume and work search. I now have a follow-up job interview with the City of Seattle, and it looks good. I am also working on a food line for Trader Joe’s. It’s so wonderful to have goals in mind!”

This holiday season, share joy with seniors in downtown Seattle.
