Eastside Friends of Seniors has begun the search for a new administrator to lead the non-profit organization founded in 1997 to provide assistance to older residents of the community to maintain their independence.
The board posted the vacancy on its website after accepting the resignation of Executive Director Claire Petersky, who has guided the growth and fund-raising activities for the past five years.
Volunteers with Eastside Friends of Seniors provide a wide range of services that allow seniors to stay in their homes. The free services include rides to medical appointments, home repair, yard clean-up and help with routine chores like shopping. Services are available to anyone in the area of service at least 60 years old.
In her years with Eastside Friends, the outgoing director headed the expansion of services the organization provides to seniors in Sammamish and Issaquah to the communities throughout the Snoqualmie Valley and into Bellevue. The offices of Eastside Friends of Seniors are located in the basement of the Mary Queen of Peace Catholic Church in Sammamish.
