Capitol Hill Village (CHV) is seeking a community-minded and service-oriented leader to be its next Executive Director. Reporting to and working in close collaboration with a highly-engaged Board, talented staff, and more than 300 dedicated volunteers, the Executive Director will be responsible for the organization’s overall management, strategic planning, growth, long-term sustainability, partnership building, and external relations. He or she must demonstrate a genuine commitment to and passion for CHV's mission of helping Capitol Hill residents live fully and comfortably in their own homes and community throughout their lives.
Do you fall asleep at night dreaming of a community laboratory to design and build high impact, creative social services and programs for the aging population? Do you have ideas about how to leverage community assets as a method itself for enhancing social engagement, mental acuity, and physical fitness among older citizens? Do you think of volunteerism as a central program pillar to improve services, programs and outcomes? If so, we want to meet you . . .
We all have to eat, so why not learn something and get together with our neighbors as we do so. The Capitol Hill Village is launching the first of a monthly series of Village Wellness Cafes on June 17. Liza Kahn, a senior employee with CHV’s vetted vendor, Home Care Assistance, will walk us through one of the easiest-to-use end-of-life planning guides—Five Wishes.
CHV has made this booklet available to its members several times in the past, but many people probably have not taken the time to think about it or fill it out. Filling it out is the first step in being able to talk to close friends and family about end-of-life wishes, so that everyone knows what we want in the event of a serious accident or illness.
This Wellness Cafe will take place from 12:00 to 1:30 pm June 17 at the Community Center for the Townhomes on Capitol Hill, Sixth and I Streets SE, which is co-hosting with the Village. The Village will provide a simple lunch and drinks or participants may bring their own.
On July 15, the Village Wellness Cafe will offer a talk by Dr. Marc Rankin, a specialist in Sports Medicine at Providence Hospital, who will talk about “Aches and Pains in Knees and Hips.” Another Village Wellness Cafe will be offered on August 12.
