We created Dupont Circle Village -- a network of friends, volunteers and area businesses who come together to help us stay plugged into 21st century life -- to stay socially active, physically fit and intellectually stimulated; to connect with friends and neighbors; and to get help when we need it.

To learn more about joining, volunteering, or making a donation, visit our website.

And if you happen to be a pretty cool older person and want to learn more about Villages in your area – or to start one in your neighborhood – Village to Village Network can help.
