Join us! Capitol Hill Village (CHV) is a community group that supports longevity on Capitol Hill. CHV engages with older adults to help them stay socially engaged, continually learning, safe and connected.
We support families with aging members through education, resources, and referrals. This is achieved through the work of a few staff and hundreds of volunteers. Our connection to aging experts and volunteers help to support living independently as we age. We offer a host of activities for members to be an active part of making Capitol Hill the greatest place on earth to live a long life.
Membership in CHV is a two-way street. 90% of activities and programs depend on members and volunteers to design and coordinate. The point of being a member is staying involved in your community. So, as you contemplate all the aspects of memberships — remember that contributing to the community is one of the benefits.
Hear From Our Members
“Initially I joined the Village because I had time to give back to the community as a volunteer. I found that the community and the offerings of the village were a more than just volunteering---it also has social opportunities, affinity groups, programs, and the ability to create new events and activities.”
"The Village has enabled me to develop new friendships. It is assuring to know the Village provides strong support and will be there if needed."
“We've enjoyed meeting so many new people with common interests, being part of the Village has expanded our connection of neighbors and friends beyond our imaging.”
“I joined the Village to become more involved with other people. I was entering the next chapter in my life, and I was looking into getting more involved in the community.”
"What's important about the Village is it makes you think about your future. For us, it has been a very wonderful organization."
Entitles a household to access volunteer services, care services, vetted vendors, wellness activities, social and educational programs.
Participate only in wellness activities, social and educational programs. Social members do not draw on volunteer services, vetted vendors or Care Services. The entire value of a Social membership is tax deductible.
Entitles individuals who have not been members to join and immediately access care services and volunteer support. Members are given an assessment for the level of need and determined, objectively, whether they are an “urgent” member. At membership renewal each year, members are re-assessed to determine whether they remain urgent members or move to another membership level.
