Serving the Needs of Aging Veterans
and their Families
Founded by Army wives for Army widows with the mission to provide them a safe and permanent home, The Foundation provides benevolent care to those in need. The Army Distaff Foundation owns and operates Knollwood, a residential and healthcare service community for the American military family, located in Washington, DC. The Foundation provides financial assistance and uncompensated services to those who would otherwise be eligible for admission but are unable to pay. Since 1959, no eligible resident has ever been turned away or asked to leave.
