Connecting Neighbors, Meeting Challenges

Note: Earlier volumes can be viewed on the Press page.



Dupont Circle is a vibrant, diverse community and most of us would like to continue living here.

We share a sense of neighborhood: we participate in local organizations and activities, we shop at local stores, and we eat in local restaurants.  We also share a common concern that we may need assistance in the future to maintain this way of life.

Dupont Circle Village enables you to do this.  We are a single organization that provides assistance in multiple ways.  We furnish neighbor volunteers to respond to your requests, we refer you to additional service providers, we assist in home maintenance, we provide transportation, we connect you to villagers with interests similar to yours, and we remain in touch so you never feel isolated.  In short, we exist to help you and your neighbors be part of a caring, inclusive community.

Join us to make this happen!

In a January 8, 2014 article on 10 caregiving tips for anyone turning 50 in 2014 (and those who are already there), the tip topping the list was "It takes a village.  Go find one."  To take a look, go to the following: 

Ready to Go Paperless?  A Power Point Presentation from a recent DCV seminar gives you an introduction to ScanSnap and how it can organize your documents.  A recent donation from Fujitsu US will make a ScanSnap device available to DCV members and volunteers; so, if you want to take those first steps to climb above the clutter, the link to that DCV presentation follows:  Organizing and Floating Above the Paperwork: A ScanSnap Seminar
