Volunteer:  Services to Members

There are a wide variety of services that our volunteers provide to help the members of Dupont Circle Village.  As a volunteer, you can pick how and when you want to be involved. 

How volunteers are contacted

The process is simple.  After you are vetted by our volunteer coordinator, you can tell us what areas or services interest you.  When a request that matches your indications is received, you and other volunteers receive an email explaining the request.  If you want to help on that request, you respond to our Volunteer Coordinator.  If not, you simply do not reply. 

What services

The volunteer services provided to members include almost anything that helps our members stay in their homes. These are the main areas where our volunteers help.

  • Transportation of members to medical and other appointments, shopping and DCV events

  • Technology Support such as computer troubleshooting and help in using new devices

  • Errands like picking up prescriptions and groceries

  • Household Tasks including changing light bulbs, hanging pictures, snow shoveling, and minor home repairs

  • Support Groups for members after hospitalizations or who have long-term needs

  • Friendly Visits to members to reduce social isolation and provide companionship

  • Snow Shoveling and other help during inclement weather
