Capitol Hill Village is continually growing and refining its work. In 2018, we are:

• Continuing a pilot project to expand into public housing developments and and churches serving lower-income Capitol Hill residents.

• Leveraging partnerships and engaging leaders and networks to create social, educational and volunteer activities within low income communities and across Capitol Hill.

• Increasing the number of low-income seniors who are not in health crisis but active in social, educational and volunteer activities.

• Improving wellness measures for low income seniors through increased social and educational engagement.

Rogers Fund History

Founding member of the Village, Steve Rogers believed that membership needed to reflect the economic diversity of our neighborhood. His vision has been realized through the Stephen C. Rogers Memorial Fund, established at his death in 2008, which assists lower-income seniors. The program provides reduced Village dues to these members, as well as assistance with urgent expenses such as personal services and home repairs.

• 15% of Capitol Hill residents over age 65 live below the Federal Poverty Level

• Many more live off of “fixed” incomes that are shrinking as other critical expenses increase

• Since 2014, 1 in 5 new members of Capitol Hill Village have required financial assistance through the Rogers Fund to join the Village and access essential services

• CHV Rogers Fund seniors are more likely to be older, more frail and require emergency financial assistance in order to remain in their homes here on the Hill

• Most Rogers Fund beneficiaries have lived in our community for more than 30 years!

Thank you for supporting Capitol Hill Village!
