Counseling and Support

With the deepest gratitude and sadness, the friends, staff and attendees at the Ballard NW Senior Center bid farewell to Carleen, our Social Worker

Three Years Later by Carleen
Dear BNWSC Friends,
Auctions, Rummage Sales, Mother’s Day Teas and Christmas Bazaars plus many other events stand out in my mind beginning in October 2016. But what stands out even more is all the special individuals I have met and/or worked with at BNWSC. It has been my pleasure and privilege to be the Social Worker at BNWSC for the past three years. I will be starting a new Chapter in my life away from the Center beginning November 16, 2019. I wish only the best for all of you.
Take care,
As Carleen has moved on, please stay posted on new Social Worker.

Adult coloring can be very therapeutic.  Some days the group is quietly working away and other days the discussions become very lively.  No experience necessary and all supplies are provided
