Camano Center

"Camano Center is 100% self-funded and through our events, activities and revenue from the Thrift Shop, we are able to provide Meals-on-Wheels to shut-ins, medical rides for the elderly and disabled so they can get to doctors’ appointments or go on a grocery run, support services such as Alzheimer’s Groups and Adult Care.  This has been the mission of the Center for almost 50 years now, but as our residents grow older and face mounting medical difficulties, the need for these services increases.  Funding, meanwhile, is on the decline.  We receive no funding from state and local government." - Tim Spencer  Come hear about all the great things the Camano Center is doing.
