NSC Employment Matching Program

Seniors Helping Seniors – Paid Opportunity 

Use your life skills to help seniors that need assistance and earn some extra money for yourself.  All potential workers are initially interviewed and checked through the Washington State Patrol system. Our volunteer NSC Employment Matching Program gets calls daily asking for help.  We find one of our service providers who’s a good match for what the “client” is needing assistance with, then give you a call to see if you’re interested.  If you are, you then call the client, discuss the job and negotiate a fee.

We are presently looking for service providers in the following categories:

  • Handymen (yes, you can say “no ladders or roof work please”!)
  • Yardwork
  • Housework
  • Home care (personal care assistance, companionship and/or meal prep, etc.)
  • Driving
  • Other (could be sewing/tailoring, in-home care, organizing, etc.)

Learn more by calling us at 425-286-1028! (office open M,W,F from 10am-1pm)

Contact Us
