Our 10th anniversary was celebrated with a major event on Saturday, October 14th, 2023 at Ris Restaurant. Click here for our review of the celebration. We want to thank all the donors who supported the Village and our founders. We would like to especially thank Barbara Kahlow for her generous $10,000 donation. A full list of donors can be found on the information page at the link above.

Foggy Bottom West End Village is a community of neighbors who care about and support each other.  It makes home feel like home where you know you will see familiar and friendly faces walking down the street.  Where you can attend fun social activities, enjoy an intellectually stimulating program, or take a private tour of a new art gallery exhibition.  Where you can feel useful by volunteering to help with Village services or by getting involved in a community project.  Where you can have someone give you a ride, help take care of you when you’re injured or just home from the hospital, or provide needed assistance with tech issues.

The Village believes that everyone should be able to age in their own home for as long as possible while living the best life possible.  We help make this happen by building and strengthening social and support networks, providing a wide range of services, and offering quality programming each week.
