Village in the Ville

Image_202108101353

Give a member of Clintonville's aging-population a ride to a medical appointment, trip to the grocery store, or social event. Help them run errands, like picking up prescriptions or returning library books.

Here's all that's needed:

  • A Valid Driver's License
  • Proof of Driver's Insurance
  • Must Be At Least 25
And if anything happens, we've got you covered. You'll be protected under our insurance as well. For that, we'll just need:
  • A Copy of Your Driver's License
  • A Copy of the Front Disbursement Page of Your Insurance Coverage
  • The Last Four Digits of Your Social Security Number
  • Your Date of Birth
You'll also be reimbursed $0.56 for every mile you drive. Or, if you'd prefer, we have our own vehicles that you can use!

With this experience, you're not just giving a ride, you're gaining a friend. So many of our volunteer drivers develop relationships with their riders, to the point that they're no longer driving to provide a service but to catch-up, hang out, and just spend time with their friends. In this way, you're getting as much as you put in!

If you have any questions, please contact William Jones - Kline at william.jones-kline@clintonvillecrc.org or (614) 390-4827.

About Village in the Ville

Location:

3222 North High Street, Columbus, OH 43202, US

Mission Statement

Our mission is to cultivate a community rooted in connectedness that celebrates diversity and promotes reciprocal volunteer assistance among older adults.

Description

Although we are a program of the Clintonville-Beechwold Community Resource Center, we are a separate 501(c)(3) nonprofit.

Our story;

A small group of friends noticed the need to support aging folks in Clintonville. They founded Village in the Ville in 2015 after learning about Villages, which are communities that help older folks overcome the challenges of aging.

Our organization has grown to about 100 members and 70 active volunteers. We have helped dozens of our members stay in their homes, rather than moving into nursing homes and assisted living facilities.

We provide services for our members that become harder with age. Our opportunities include, but are not limited to, helping members with; yard care, grocery shopping, transportation to their doctors' appointments, home repair, meal preparation, technology assistance, and snow removal during the winter.

Weekly, we hold events for Village members. Recently, events have included visiting parks, museums, restaurants, pumpkin patches, and shops (in masks, with social distancing). Also, we frequently offer virtual yoga, tai chi, computer proficiency, and art classes, along with regular virtual book club meetings and coffee hours. Frequently, we invite experts to speak to members about various topics, like social justice and health.
