Established in 2002 by Favil West and Chuck Davis, the Foundation Assisting Seniors (FAS) began with a mission to assist the senior community in times of illness, recovery, confinement at home, coping with loss of a loved one, and other senior challenges, as well as to provide assistance with everyday tasks such as household maintenance. Each year, the foundation provides durable medical equipment and funding to our partners in the Solera and Aliante communities and the Nevada US Chinese Cultural Association. The equipment is also available to all seniors (50+) living in the Las Vegas valley. Since 2002, FAS has responded to over 260,000 assists, 30,000 per year, and the HOWRU© program has saved seven lives. FAS is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit public benefit corporation.
