Spread the word about ANV

Could you help an older adult with errands, transportation or household tasks? Arlington Neighborhood Village (ANV) relies on volunteers to help seniors age-in-place. As we age, simple tasks that we once took for granted (getting boxes down from the attic, changing a lightbulb, driving to the grocery store or an unfamiliar location) become more difficult. ANV is part of a nationwide movement to provide support and services to seniors so that they can remain in their homes and community for as long as possible, safely and independently.

ANV volunteers drive our members to medical appointments or the grocery store; help with minor household tasks and how to use technology; connect as a walking buddy or friendly visitor; and run errands to local neighborhood locations. Along the way, volunteers provide a friendly social connection to older adults and reduce their isolation.

Transportation volunteers are needed during weekday business hours; many other services can be provided on a more flexible schedule. Please visit www.ANVarlington.org to learn more about ANV and to apply to be a volunteer (you must be 18 or over; 21 to serve as a driver). All volunteers supporting members receive training and must pass a background check.
