Metropolitan Senior Network (MSN) is a personal and professional development and business networking association. The goal of MSN is to educate and support individuals and companies who serve the senior population in the Portland metro area. MSN is one of the longest running and most respected networking groups in our area. Both our Founder (Clayton Foutch) and our Executive Director (Heidi Rowell) are past board members of the organization. Each year the membership of MSN votes to award $250 each to four non profits serving the four counties of the metro area. These non profits must share the core values of MSN which are compassion, accountability, respect and excellence. Stepping up for Seniors (SUFS) was honored to be chosen to receive the donation for Washington County this year. We are grateful to the membership of MSN for recognizing the importance of serving older adults living below the poverty line.
