THE VILLAGE: Palisades Village, a District of Columbia tax-exempt nonprofit corporation under §501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, is a community-based network of neighbors in Berkley, Foxhall, Kent, Palisades. Spring Valley and Wesley Heights. Palisades Village is committed to helping residents live safely, independently and comfortably in their own homes.
SERVICES: The Village provides a wide variety of non-medical services to Full Members through its corps of neighborhood volunteers. All volunteers submit to a background check. These services include medical and general transportation, friendly visits, errands, shopping, household chores, technical assistance, medical note taking and referral services. Our services also include social and cultural activities, exercise classes, clubs, lectures and field trips. For any services that cannot be provided through the corps of volunteers, such as major home repairs, home inspections and home health-care needs, the Village will assist Members in finding a qualified provider.
FEES: The annual fee for Full Membership in the Village is $600 annually for an individual and $900 annually for a household of two or more Members (except for those Members in the Membership Plus program.) Membership runs for a 12-month period commencing from the date on which the Village officially accepts this executed agreement and appropriate payment. The annual fee may be increased from time to time, and annual Membership may be renewed subject to agreement of the Member(s) and Palisades Village and payment of the then-applicable annual fee. Membership fees cover all volunteer services provided.
TERMINATION OF AGREEMENT: The Village reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to terminate this agreement, at any time, if the Village determines that it is in the best interest of the Village, its volunteers, other Members or the undersigned Member(s). If the Village terminates this agreement, it will return a portion of the annual fee paid on a prorated basis from the month of termination. The undersigned Member(s) may terminate this agreement at any time by providing written notice to the Village. If the Member(s) terminate(s) this agreement, no portion of the annual fee shall be refunded.
PRIVACY: The Village will take all reasonable steps to protect the personal information of its Members. However, where concerns regarding a Member’s health or safety arise, the Village reserves the right to contact the individual(s) listed as non-member contacts/emergency contacts or other appropriate people, as determined by the Village. In addition, to connect a Member with a third-party vendor at the Member’s request, the Village may disclose contact and other relevant information.
WAIVER OF LIABILITY: As a Full Member of Palisades Village, I understand that the Village is not affiliated with the third party vendors it may recommend, and I release Palisades Village from all responsibility or liability stemming from the conduct of third party providers. I further indemnify and agree to hold the Village harmless for any loss, expense or liability arising out of the activities of its employees or volunteers, including but not limited to any action I, my heirs and assigns, or my insurance company might bring for negligence, personal injury or invasion of privacy.
As a Full Member of Palisades Village, I understand that the Village is not a provider of emergency services or health-care services, is not a health-care administrator, and does not employ licensed health professionals or social workers. This Agreement is not meant to create any special relationship giving rise to a duty to aid or protect between myself and Palisades Village.
