CHV Gains Insight into Membership and Their Transportation Needs

Last Spring, 150 CHV members responded to a survey seeking to learn more about who CHV members are, the extent to which they are able to get around in the community, and levels of participation in and satisfaction with the Capitol Hill Village.

The survey was funded with support from Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments, District Department of Transportation Vision Zero program, Deerbrook Charitable Trust, and the Morris and Gwendolyn Cafritz Foundation. The findings represent the experiences of survey respondents and may not represent the experiences of all CHV members.

See the December CHV News for a summary of what we learned from the survey. The complete survey results are available here:

Arthur Capper Fire Victims Need Your Help!

On September 19th, the Arthur Capper Senior Building caught on fire and all residents have been evacuated and are staying at one of four hotels. Residents lost everything and are facing a host of issues to resolve. City Leaders have asked Capitol Hill Village to recruit individuals who would be willing to provide rides to seniors to doctors' appointments, to get groceries and to purchase new clothes and personal items.

DC’s Long Term Care Roadmap to 2028

CHV member Mary Procter and volunteer Elizabeth Cabot Nash presented the findings of their month’s long research and analysis of Long Term Care Options at the 2018 Annual Meeting of Leading Age DC on October 5th. The research brings together statistics about changing demographics in DC, an outline of future long term care needs and current resources (lack thereof) to match them and proposed a set of next steps questions. Procter and Nash are planning a series of presentations and a white paper to begin a multi-sector conversation about the issue.
