Are you handy and willing to lend your neighbor a hand?

Village in the Ville is currently looking for handypersons willing to help the aging-population of Clintonville, Beechwold, and the University District with minor home repair and maintenance. Help our Village members fix furniture, appliances, and the like. Or help them with minor home projects, like turning mattresses, changing lightbulbs, and the like.

To help, all you need to do is:

  • Fill Out Our Volunteer Application
  • Complete a Background Check
With Village in the Ville, you're getting as much as you put in. You're not just lending a hand, you're gaining a friend. So many of our volunteers develop relationships with our Village members, to the point that they're no longer providing a service but catching-up, hanging out, and just spending time with their friends.

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.
