Help us help low resources community villages to donate our software to them
Village Softforce™ 2016 is another software product thought, designed and development by Luis E. Woolley and his team from Scan Archives International While community villages around the nation are conducted at a grassroots level they lack the privilege of an established corporate structure due to budget constraints. With more efficiency, these villages could gain the time needed to focus on member services, help elderly neighbors and promote various social events to engage and expand their communities.
Regardless of the type of organization or industry, three universal elements always apply to any entity: sales, operations and finance. Community villages are no exception:
Therefore, community villages are not immune to information technology trends since handling data, multiple functionalities and operations is essential.
Based upon this fundamental knowledge, we developed Village Softforce™. It is a web based administration platform in which village managers can find all of the necessary tools needed to organize, administer and produce reports vital to their duties and operations. Village Softforce™ maintains a robust integrated database and is cloud based for surefire scalability.
There are many village software programs on the market and we are not afraid to say that some are great products. Since Village Softforce™ is a custom made web-based development and future mobile application, it can be adjusted to suit the specific needs of any community village. We simply ask villagers to compare them to what we have created and draw their own conclusions. Here at Scan Archives, we are confident that Village Softforce™ is the most suitable and powerful software available to village communities.
In fact, Village Softforce™ has received feedback and support from many experienced village managers, village pioneers and village community activists in the D.C. Metro area. These professionals include people such as Jackie Lapidus, Connie Road, Evan Smith, Todd Smith, Carolina and James Jones just to name a few.
One noteworthy observation when comparing Village Softforce™ to other markets products: notice how user friendly Village Softforce™ is to operate. Anyone can grasp the program instantly. Of utmost importance is that our team has the flexibility to work with villages when it comes to set up costs and monthly maintenance fees. We are most concerned about fairness for the villages in achieving a budget plan that works for everyone.
We welcome new community villages with a special set up offer. Each case is individualized and can be discussed during an introductory meeting as soon as conveniently possible.
As business consultants with seasoned management experience at all executive levels in a variety of industries and diverse cultures, we at Scan Archives harbor an inherent understanding of operations and what it takes for any business or organization to operate successfully. Our professional history and knowledge base provide solid advantages when building the architectural flow of functionalities for custom made village software. In addition to Village Softforce™, we also develop any type of custom made CRM and CMS platform, high volume digital document conversion, data management software and mobile applications.

Like many Villages, the goal of the Friendship Heights Neighbors Network (FHNN) is to help our neighbors age more comfortably by helping to support them in their own homes and helping them remain active in their communities as long as possible. While still in development, FHNN is well on its way to launching. We expect that the group of local volunteers who are already beginning to form will be trained to offer services to Network members. The kinds of services FHNN will offer will be tailored to the needs of the members and the availability of suitable volunteers. We expect that members and volunteers will reside in all eight of the residential high-rise buildings in Friendship Heights:
|The Carleton||The Willoughby|
|The Elizabeth||4701 Willard Avenue|
|Highland House||4620 North Park Avenue|
|Highland House West||4615 North Park Avenue|
We anticipate that some activities will bring members together for social and educational events held conveniently in the neighborhood. Other services will be more individual: transportation to doctors’ appointments, help with grocery shopping or errands, assistance with setting up or using electronic and computer equipment, friendly visits or phone check-in services, referrals to trusted professional services, and more.
Members will pay an annual fee, but nothing additional for services. The membership fee is necessary to pay for volunteer training, background checks, insurance, expenses for social and educational events, website and other technology expenses, telephone, copying, printing and other operating costs. We expect to have more than one level of service and the fee structure will be determined soon. Community members and businesses who understand the benefit of neighbors helping neighbors will support the Network through generous donations. Both dues and donations will be essential to create a sustainable organization that provides the quality of services that the community needs and deserves.
We hope you are interested in learning more about becoming a member. If you are, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Volunteers are the Heart of the Friendship Heights Neighbors Network (FHNN)
Volunteers make ‘Villages’ work and thrive. Volunteers from other Villages tell us that helping their neighbors is among the most rewarding activities they have done. FHNN Board members are all volunteers and we have made considerable progress establishing the organization, but we can’t start services for the community without more volunteer support.
Our survey last spring of Friendship Heights residents indicated substantial interest in volunteering. There are many ways to help your neighbors through FHNN. As we prepare to accept memberships, there is still work to do. We need administrative support:
As we get ready to launch, FHNN will be training volunteers to provide direct services to members. Among the possible services are:
Transportation (to doctor appointments, grocery shopping, prescription pick up, etc.)
Technology support (computer or smart phone support),
Personal support (phone check in, friendly visits, pet care, plant care, organize papers, decluttering support, etc.), and
Medical note taking during doctor appointments (requires additional training).
Please consider helping us launch the FHNN. There is a lot of exciting work to be done. Contact us at email@example.com to discuss how you can be a part of this community building effort.The amount and types of services that FHNN will be able to offer members will depend on the availability of volunteers willing to provide those services. FHNN will provide training for volunteers and will need to conduct criminal background checks, possibly driving checks, for all volunteers who provide direct member services. This will assure that FHNN offers quality services as well as protects both volunteers and members.
The Friendship Heights Neighbors Network has been formed as a non-profit, non-partisan, non-sectarian organization to provide volunteer services and social interaction so that all our members can remain active and engaged in the community. FHNN is registered with the IRS as a tax exempt 501(c)(3) organization so contributions to FHNN are tax deductible. We expect all members will be paying dues. However, as with other Villages, dues will cover only a fraction of the operating costs. We believe that residents, members, and businesses in the community will recognize the needs that FHNN could fill and look forward to their support. If you would like to make a tax deductible donation, please send a check payable to FHNN:

We also plan to post information about other activities and programs in the area that may be of interest to our members.
Friendship Heights Neighbors Network will have a table outside the polling station at the Friendship Heights Village Center on Election Day, November 8. Stop by, visit us, and learn more about our plans and how you can participate.

From 7AM to 6PM, 20 FHNN volunteers took turns staffing our Election Day table. FHNN volunteers distributed information about the national Village movement in general and about the FHNN progress in forming our own village. The volunteers met with community members and exchanged ideas with 16th district delegates Marc Korman and Bill Frick.
Board members, building representatives, and interested neighbors met for an extended planning meeting mapping out the route to launching the Network.
