Parkside Village is an organization of neighbors who live in Parkside Condominium.   We noticed that all of us occasionally need help with transportation and household tasks, and that we were happy to support each other when asked.   In addition, many of us felt a need for more opportunities to interact and get to know each other better.

The cooperative neighbors helping neighbors “village” model seemed a good way to fill those needs, and we established Parkside Village as a Maryland nonprofit corporation.  Parkside Village members vary in age, cultural backgrounds, and interests, but we all are devoted to enhancing the quality of life in our Parkside neighborhood, with special attention to those aging in place.  We function as a community network that provides mutual support and helpful services as well as group and educational activities—all working together to strengthen the community.    

Get in Touch


The Parkside Village motto is "Neighbors Helping Neighbors", and that's what we do.

Sometimes people need a little help to get routine things done.   For example, our older neighbors may be cautious about climbing a stepladder to change a light bulb, and anyone may need to be driven someplace from time to time.  

Personal Services

We offer our members personal services provided by trained, vetted and insured volunteers from within our community.   Services evolve depending on need and volunteer capability, but they include such things as:

  • Transportation to doctor visits, shopping, etc.

Take a photographic tour of JEWELS in the SAND…. See the eerie remains of a diamond-mining ghost town in Namibia being swallowed by dunes. Then, be amazed by a dazzling display of jewel-toned wild flowers—a rare mass bloom of more than 3,500 species in the southwest African desert, 1/3 of them found nowhere else on the planet. Ron Outen tells the stories and shows a curated set of photos taken by a group of pro- and semi-pro photographers.
