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 Penzance building (formerly Long & Foster), 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!

Hold These Truths 
March 27, 2018 @12:00 pm
Arena Stage - 1101 6th Street SW

Reeling from the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941, and driven by fear and prejudice, America placed its own citizens of Japanese ancestry in internment camps. A play for our times, Hold These Truths tells the true story of Gordon Hirabayashi, the American son of Japanese immigrants who defied an unjust court order to uphold the values on which America was founded. Filled with hope and buoyed by unquenchable patriotism, Hirabayashi’s unflinching defiance will leave you cheering the strength of the individual and his dedication to his own unalienable rights.

Please call the Georgetown Village office at 202-999-8988 for ticket information.
