Mill Creek Village


  • For many of us, our familiar neighborhood of Mill Creek Towne is where we’d like to stay as we grow older. Mill Creek Village, a volunteer group of neighbors helping neighbors, will help us do just that. This “village” concept follows in the tradition of other such groups that have formed across the U.S. and especially in the D.C. area. By providing benefits such as transportation to medical appointments, light handyman services, and neighborhood social events, Mill Creek Village can help lighten the load of maintaining an independent home as we “age in place.”
