Why join Palisades Village?

Palisades Village is a vibrant, diverse and multi-aged group of friends and neighbors working together to strengthen and support each other in the neighborhoods that we’ve all called home for years.

Is Palisades Village right for you? Let’s find out. Read through the following set of questions. If you find yourself saying “yes” more often than not, give us a call or send us an email to schedule a time to talk about Palisades Village membership.

  1. Are you aged 50 or older?
  2. Do you live in the Berkley, Kent, Foxhall, Palisades, Spring Valley, or Wesley Heights neighborhoods of Washington, D.C.?
  3. Are you planning to remain in your own home for the foreseeable future?
  4. Do you consider yourself to be a fairly independent?
  5. Do you need rides to medical appointments or grocery shopping?
  6. Are there everyday “household chores” that are becoming more difficult for you to do yourself?
  7. Are you interested in meeting new people in your neighborhood?
  8. Could you use a little extra help around your home?
  9. Would you enjoy attending social events such as dinners and lectures?
  10. Are you concerned about not “bothering” or “becoming a burden” to your children when you need assistance?

Our goal is to provide safe, simple access to timely, household related services and assistance for older residents gracefully living among us in several Washington, D.C. neighborhoods.

We believe that delivering these services will not only allow people to remain in the comfort of their own homes longer, it will also help strengthen and unite our communities for generations to come.

“When you participate, you’re not just joining the community, you’re building the community.” A Palisades Village member.

Palisades Village currently serves members living in the Berkley, Kent, Foxhall, Palisades, Spring Valley and Wesley Heights neighborhoods.
