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!
