Dupont Circle Conservancy
"The Dupont Circle Conservancy, formed in 1978, is an all volunteer membership-based non-profit 501c(3) educational organization. Its mission is to promote preservation of the historic and architectural character of the Dupont Circle Historic District and nearby areas of the adjacent Greater U Street, Massachusetts Avenue (from 17th to 23rd Streets), Sixteenth Street, and Strivers' Section Historic Districts, all located in Northwest Washington, DC."Today, many people want to remain in their homes as they grow older. Our Village, primarily through volunteers, enables Dupont Circle residents to retain their independence by providing help as needs arise regarding illness, disability, temporary hardship, and the maintenance of their homes. Equally important, our Village encourages cultural and socializing events to promote enjoyment and connectedness in our vibrant urban neighborhood.
