Have two or three hours of time here and there? Volunteer in your community! One of several DC villages, Northwest Neighbors Village creates a neighbor-to-neighbor network of support allowing seniors in upper northwest to stay independent and connected to the community. Volunteers help with life's little challenges - making sense of technology, changing light bulbs, or managing a small project.

Volunteers also provide rides to programs and medical appointments. As a volunteer with Northwest Neighbors, you can also help organize interesting programs and social events or write an article for our newsletter. You will develop friendships with members and other volunteers who live in the community while attending (or leading) a walk, educational program, book club, outing or a myriad of other activities.

Volunteering is easy and flexible. Each week, volunteers receive a list of requests. Choose one that matches your interests and schedule. And if you are not available that week, just check back the following week.Northwest Neighbors Village covers upper northwest DC, from Upton Street north. You will find us in Forest Hills, Chevy Chase, American University Park, Tenleytown and Friendship Heights.

To volunteer or just get more information, contact us at or on the web at NNVDC.ORG.
