How You Can Support the Village
The Village strives to create a supportive neighborhood where older residents thrive and are a vital thread in the fabric of our community. Currently we serve 150 members in the Cleveland Park and Woodley Park neighborhoods through organized social activities and direct assistance for those that need it.
The Village is a volunteer led 501c3 not-for-profit. Your tax-deductible contribution is an investment in our community and allows us to serve our neighbors by supporting the organization of events and volunteers.
