Neighbors Helping Neighbors

The mission of Guemes Connects is to foster a network of support for the Guemes Island Community.  The group is committed to meeting the needs of anyone needing assistance regardless of age, illness, disability, race or religion.

The group's goal is to provide on-island skilled, compassionate assistance for six areas: aid with meals, respite care, transportation, home maintenance, or medical equipment & housing.

Guemes Connects sponsors The Gathering, a weekly lunch program open to everyone.  Meals are served on Thursday from 11:30 to 12:15 from October through April in the Fellowship Hall of the Guemes Community Church. A suggested donation of $5.00 is requested. Free blood pressure testing is available from 11:15 to12:30.
