Providing Community Support
to Vashon Islanders
The Vashon Care Network grew out of the need to connect people on Vashon with the services, supplies, and support required to live at home independently. We act as an umbrella organization to help Islanders in need--offering free medical supplies through our Care Closet, as well as offering information regarding care options for individual care needs.
Islanders in need of medical equipment (wheelchairs, walkers, shower chairs, crutches
and canes) or personal hygiene supplies (such as Depends, and incontinent care items) can contact our Care Closet which will provide them free of charge and even deliver them to you if you are unable to pick them up. The Care Closet team will contact you and arrange for pickup within 1 to 3 days . If you email us, please include a phone number so we can reach you.
