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, and thanks to their generosity we are located 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!

Trip to City Center-November 9 @TBD
The morning of November 9, 2016 a tour guide will lead us through the five blocks that circumscribe the City Center in downtown DC. The City Center lays between H, I, 11th and 9th Streets, NW. It is a recently built development with distinctive glass and metal buildings. It houses a hotel, a high-end shopping center, many restaurants and a small park.
Driving from Georgetown to that section of Downtown DC is easy, a huge 500 space underground garage is accessible from 11th St or from 9th St. click here for parking information. City buses, and two metro stations also lead to the City Center: Metro Center and Gallery Place/ Chinatown Metro.
Our starting time (to be confirmed) will be 10:30 or 11:00am. Meeting point to be confirmed later also.
After the walking tour we will have lunch at the Mango Tree, a slightly above-average thai restaurant located at 929 H St NW. (Plan to spend $10 to cover the commission of our Tour Guide, and you can click here to see The Mango Tree menu.)
Book Discussion - November 14 @ 10:15 am
All the King's Men by Robert Penn Warren
