Kalorama and Dupont Circle "Villages"

The Kalorama and Dupont Circle communities are actively exploring ways to help our older residents live more independent lives and stay in our neighborhoods. Kalorama Village, Inc., has already been formed as a tax-exempt, non-profit, membership organization and is working with Dupont Circle residents to pursue this initiative. Your response to this brief survey will help us understand the needs of our neighbors. Even if you have no current need for the services that a "Village" might offer, please consider whether you may be interested in the future.
