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!
Martin Tolchin-President Trump-What’s Next?
Location: 3240 O St NW
March 30 at 6:00 pm
Georgetown Village invites our members, volunteers, neighbors and friends to join us for a special talk by Martin Tolchin, discussing what we can expect from the new administration. Will Donald Trump moderate or double down? Who's up and who's down? How much of a backlash will there be? What should we be doing? Martin Tolchin brings his incredible knowledge and experience to Village members.
After 40 years at the NY Times, mostly covering Congress, Mr. Tolchin founded 2 publications, The Hill and Politico. He is also the author, with his wife, of 8 books on politics, including "To the Victor: Political Patronage from the Clubhouse to the White House" which has been cited in five Supreme Court decisions as the authoritative work on the subject. Mr. Tolchin is currently a Senior Scholar at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars and an enthusiastic Georgetown Village member.
This talk is being given at 6 pm we will be providing wine and light refreshments. There is no charge for the program, however, we do need RSVPs, please call 202-999-8988 or email Lynn@georgetown-village.org
