Who We Are

Mount Pleasant Village is a community-based nonprofit that mobilizes resources to enrich the lives of neighborhood residents. Our neighbor-to-neighbor volunteer services and social, wellness, educational, and cultural programs help members remain independent in their homes and within our community as they age. Our Village is part of a nationwide movement that began in 2001 with the founding of Boston's Beacon Hill Village to help seniors remain in their homes as they age. Capitol Hill Village became the first in Washington, D.C., followed by Villages in more than a dozen other D.C. communities.

One of a more than a dozen Villages serving seniors in our city, Mount Pleasant Village is located in the historic Mount Pleasant neighborhood in the center of the city, about three miles north of the White House. The Village embodies the unique characteristics of our residents and the values by which we live our lives. It seeks to reflect the demographics and personality of the Mount Pleasant neighborhood. We are an all-volunteer organization: the services we offer are provided by volunteers; our programs, activities, and events are planned and organized by volunteers; and our governance is by volunteers. As a result, we are able to keep our annual membership fee at the comparatively low rate of $50 per year. 

We believe strongly in being inclusive and welcoming to everyone in our inter-generational community, and will reach out to those who are not fully represented among our membership. This includes the homeowners, renters, non-profits, and small businesses that make Mount Pleasant home. We are committed to being member-focused and responsive to their needs. We will build a durable framework for neighbor-to-neighbor support that will make it easier for us all to celebrate the opportunities and meet the challenges of aging well in community.
