Through a centrally-coordinated, local network of screened volunteers and vetted professional providers, NNV offers its members transportation to medical appointments, grocery shopping assistance, home repairs and handyman help, computer and technology assistance, access to social and cultural activities and more.
NNV was founded in 2009 and proud to be serving our community for over 10 years.
Beacon Hill Village in Boston was the pioneer and is our model. In Washington DC, the Capitol Hill, Dupont Circle, Palisades, and Pennsylvania Avenue East neighborhoods have also formed villages. We are incorporated in the District of Columbia as a non-profit, with a Board of Directors and working committees. The IRS has designated NNV as a 501(c)(3), organization making all donations tax-deductible.
