Call or email Paula Wright for a tour (707) 573-4508, pwright@friendshouse.org.

“It’s a caring community and we all look after each other.”

Having all the day-to-day items included in the rent leaves you more time for the parts of life you enjoy! Join our countless activity groups. We have something for every interest: writing, art, film study, theater, sewing, quilting, language learning, story telling, book clubs, fitness and exercise, gardening, and a wide offering of social games and other activities.

“If we don’t have the activity you want, start it!”

“Don’t Wait. I came here at age 69 and it takes a couple of months to transition and a year to make really close friends. We really love our neighbors and the intellectually stimulating classes.”
