History

.

COMPASSION. COMFORT. HOSPITALITY. JUSTICE. GENEROSITY.

.

Those values motivated our founders. Today that is exactly what you will find when you become part of our Northaven Community.

For over 40 years, Northaven Senior Living has provided an affordable retirement community in North Seattle for low-income seniors while still providing some of the highest quality care and support.

Originally founded as a not-for-profit outreach by Olympic View Community Church of the Brethren, Northaven started as a 198-unit independent living facility. In 1994, we were able to add a 40-unit assisted living facility committed to accepting Medicaid dependent seniors and making it possible for seniors in the independent residence and others to remain at Northaven even longer.

Several of the Olympic View Church members who helped to found us are still active on our Board. Some even live at Northaven. They continue vigilantly making sure we remain true to the spirit in which we were built.

Today we are looking at ways Northaven can expand its services to seniors who live in the neighborhoods around us helping them remain in their own homes longer, staying healthy and engaged in their communities yet also here when they need to move to a supportive and caring community.

Our residents are an unpretentious community of people with rich life experiences. Northaven Senior Living is a warm and caring place where you can immediately feel at home.
