Our national lawmakers are holding Town Halls around the state in the month of August. This is a great opportunity to talk with them about the issues of concern to you. These are the sessions we are aware of. If you hear of any others, please let us know at aarpwa@aarp.org and we'll add them to the list. All information is accurate to the best of our knowledge but it's best to double check with the legislator's office before you go.

OldDogHaven
AARP members Judith and Lee Piper have a special place in their heart and home for older dogs who may be sick, struggling at a shelter, or without a place to stay because their human companions are having difficulty.  After several years of welcoming older dogs to their 5-acre property in Arlington, they stumbled onto an idea.  Let’s recruit loving families that are willing and able to care for elder canines over 8 years old AND we’ll start a non-profit, Old Dog Haven, to raise money to help pay for any medical costs that might be needed.

Are you a homeowner who is concerned about the cost of home maintenance or repairs? Are you worried about paying your property taxes or where you will find the funds to accommodate increasing costs on a fixed income? Are you finding it difficult to keep up with your mortgage payment? You are not alone. About 29% of senior homeowners in Washington are “cost-burdened,” which means they spend more than 30% of their monthly income on housing costs. The good news is that help is available.
