Learn About Capitol Hill Village

About Us Video

What is a Village?

The Village Movement started in 2002 in Boston. A Village organizes volunteers to support members in their own neighborhood. Each Village provides slightly different services depending on what members want and need. Villages serve members within specific geographic boundaries. Villages help members to live safely and with purpose by coordinating access to affordable services and a variety of social, educational and entertaining programs. Today, there are more than 250 established villages, and over 100 in development in 43 states and the District of Columbia.

What does Capitol Hill Village do?

Through our volunteer-first mission, we engage neighborhood residents, including older adults, to support one another to improve our community and live fulfilling lives. We also provide case management, and social, educational, and wellness programming. 90% of our activities and programs are designed and coordinated by members and volunteers and most are free and open to the public.

Why are People Aging in Place?

Aging-in-place is not new.  What is new is making “aging-in-place” a deliberate strategy for living our best life.  Villages make it possible to spend our elderhood in the neighborhood we love, while expanding our social connections and learning new things. Villages offer practical support for the things that get harder as we age – e.g., transportation and home maintenance.  Aging-in-place means not having to move to feel safe and supported as we grow older.

Capitol Hill Village is dedicated to equity and access for all community members. If you are interested in Capitol Hill Village Services and need translation, please send an email to info@capitolhillvillage.com stating your name, email and phone number.
