Welcome to Arlington Neighborhood Villages!
Since April 2014, Arlington Neighborhood Villages has been serving the 55+ residents of Arlington County, Virginia. County residents have a valuable resource to turn to when they want to remain in their homes as they age.
Arlington Neighborhood Villages (ANV) is a county-wide non-profit organization dedicated to enabling older residents of Arlington County, Virginia, to continue living in their own homes and communities as they age. A village is a network of neighbors helping neighbors – a community-based, grassroots organization that provides the support services and the social and educational programs needed to help older adults stay in their homes and remain active in their communities as long as possible.
Arlington Neighborhood Villages combines elements of a senior cooperative, a social club, and a concierge service. We offer our members transportation and shopping assistance, access to social and cultural activities, exercise and fitness opportunities, household and home maintenance, as well as information on a host of professional and social services.
Do you find you are…
- Tired of asking neighbors to drive you to the grocery store or medical appointments?
- Needing help with minor household repairs?
- Wanting to make new social connections now that you are retired?
- Having trouble reaching that ceiling light bulb that needs replacing?
- Needing recommendations for roofers, plumbers, electricians?
- Frustrated with computer, TV, DVD or answering machine problems?
- Wanting to socialize more, but unable to get out on your own?
With just one phone call, Arlington Neighborhood Villages will match your request with a willing volunteer or refer you to recommended professional services and vendors through Washington Consumers’ CHECKBOOK.
If you are an Arlington County resident 55 or older, you are eligible for membership. Even if you aren’t yet in need of ANV’s services, you can still take advantage of social and educational programs. And joining now helps ensure that ANV will still be here when you need us! County residents of any age can sign up as volunteers to provide services throughout Arlington County. In fact, ANV members can also serve as volunteers, finding ways to give back to those who assist them!
Don’t just take our word for it — hear from our members and volunteers how Arlington Neighborhood Villages has enriched their lives.
