One gift pays the rent and fights social isolation
For our 2017 year-end appeal, we ask your help on two specific items that contribute greatly to our members’ quality of life:
- Rent for our Village “home” including space for senior social, educational, cultural, and health/wellness programs.
- Funding to continue research efforts on ways to reduce social isolation and loneliness. Read more.
Village wins DCOA grant to combat social isolation
A new $71,000 grant
from the D.C. Office on Aging will allow Foggy Bottom West End Village
to continue its work on social isolation by developing an innovative online video education library for seniors on health and wellness topics.
The Village won the grant as part of the DCOA’s 2018 Senior Village competitive grant process, and it puts FBWE Village on the forefront of social engagement research in the District.
will use online technology to make the health and wellness video library accessible to all Villages in the country, as well as to other groups working with seniors. Most notably our project will serve as a training and resource tool in overcoming obstacles to social interaction among the elderly. Read more.
