EVERETT — Senior Services of Snohomish County is changing its name.
The nonprofit has been providing services to older adults and people living with disabilities for 43 years. It is now called Homage Senior Services.
“The name Homage more accurately aligns with our values and mission to those we serve,” said Steve McGraw, CEO of Homage Senior Services, in a statement Tuesday announcing the name change.
Honoring older people, “valuing their life’s contributions, and now providing caring help when they need it is core to what this organization stands for,” the press release said.
It was important for the organization to select a new name that was bold and inclusive and represented the broad population of older adults, people with disabilities and those who care for them, officials said.
Homage provides a variety of services that allow people to continue living independently. They include health and wellness, transportation, food and nutrition, home modifications and social services.
Established in 1974, Homage Senior Services is the largest nonprofit serving seniors, people with disabilities and those who care for them in Snohomish County. Its mission is “to promote independence, preserve dignity, and enhance the quality of life” for those served.
