WAVE Meeting Monday, July 20, 2015
The next WAVE quarterly meeting will be held on July 20. Arlington Neighborhood Villages is hosting the meeting in the Fellowship Hall of the Church of the Covenant, 2666 Military Road, Arlington 22207. A map to the address is here. The Church of the Covenant is not near Metro, but there is plenty of parking in the lot to the right as you enter the grounds. Enter the building through the lower level doors next to the parking lot.
Coffee and refreshments will be available starting at 9:00. The program will start at 9:30 and end at noon. The program for the July meeting will focus on transportation – the service most in demand at almost every village.
NVRides http://www.nvrides.org/) is a network of service providers who have come together to improve the scheduling and tracking of volunteer transportation services for older adults throughout Northern Virginia.
Village Rides (http://www.villagerides.org) is a pilot program in Montgomery County that offers ride-scheduling software, training and support to village volunteers who drive older residents to where they want to go.
The Virginia and Maryland programs are similar in that both offer the same scheduling and tracking system at no cost to all villages in their service area. Presenters will be the leaders of the program in each of the two service areas: Jennifer Kanarek from NVRides and Yonette Williams from Village Rides.
