Welcome to Georgetown Village
We are glad you're here!
Georgetown Village(GV), is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization providing services and programs in Georgetown, Burleith, Hillandale, and nearby neighborhoods. GV was established to help our neighbors age in place by providing them with a variety of support services, educational opportunities, cultural and social programming. We provide trained and vetted volunteers and when necessary professional service providers to meet our members’ needs.
Georgetown Village is part of a growing network of similar communities nationwide, including many in the Washington, DC area, in which neighbors are helping neighbors. Our village represents the new face of aging-in-place that allows Village members to live full lives in their own homes with the assistance of their neighbors. In this way we create a caring, supportive, local community to help seniors remain safely and happily in their own homes.
Come be part of a caring, supportive community.
The Georgetown Village office is located in the Long & Foster building, on the lower level of 1680 Wisconsin Avenue NW. The office is staffed by our Executive Director, Lynn Golub-Rofrano, and volunteers, Monday through Thursday, from 10 am - 6 pm. The office is not open on Federal Holidays. Be sure to call before you stop by in case we are out helping one of our members or enjoying some of our trips or social activities!

April 24 - Book Discussions: Hillbilly Elegy
On April 24, we will be discussing the NY Times best seller Hillbilly Elegy by J.D. Vance describing the Appalachian values of his upbringing and their relation to the social problems of his hometown. Alongside his personal history, Vance raises questions such as the responsibility of his family and people for their own misfortune. This book has topped the best seller list in August 2016 and January 2017, and I am sure it will provoke an interesting discussion amongst GV members.

|25 Easy Recipes for Senior Nutrition
|Many different factors make it difficult for seniors to eat well — from changing taste buds to a lack of interest in cooking, to medication side effects. On top of that, older adults have different nutritional requirements. Though they need fewer calories, they need more B vitamins, calcium, protein, and other nutrients.
