Leadership Team

This intergenerational team consists of CHV Members/Volunteers and community members. Members provide input on and assist with CHV’s LGBTQ programming, inclusion work, and the DC Villages Committee on Safe Spaces. The team meets on an ongoing basis.

DC Villages Committee on Safe Spaces for LGBT Older Adults

The DC Villages Committee on Safe Spaces for LGBT Older Adults was developed to ensure Villages are spaces where LGBTQ older adults feel safe and welcome. Representatives from each of the Villages (Village employees, volunteers, or members, and may be in the LGBTQ community or an ally) are working on an ongoing basis to discuss strengths, areas in need for improvement and goals to work towards. The Committee seek guidance and tools from experts as well as volunteers within the LGBTQ community.  If you are interested in learning more, please contact shenson@capitolhillvillage.org or call 202-543-1778.
