HomeWhat's a Village?


Villages are grassroots organizations that help neighbors connect with and take better care of one another. They pay particular attention to meeting the needs of seniors. Villages help older adults stay in their communities by providing social activities, services, as well as educational events.

DC alone has 14 Villages and counting, with the Brookland Village being the first in Ward 5.
