We deliver leading-edge housing, health, and
wellness services to older adults
We honor military sacrifice by serving those who served our nation.
The Army Distaff Foundation is a 501 (c) (3) organization established in 1959 that provides housing, health, and wellness services to retired military officers and their families as a testament to their sacrifices, regardless of one’s ability to pay.
We provide these services at Knollwood Military Retirement Community in Northwest Washington, DC. Knollwood offers affordable, top-quality, safe, secure, community living for 300 men and women after a lifetime of military sacrifice.
Sustain our community through donations to our Building and Community Fund.
Health & Wellness
Through Knollwood, we deliver comprehensive, cutting-edge, life-affirming health and wellness care. For 60 years, we have been leaders in healthy aging services and a model for serving the military and uniformed services community.
Fuel our programs through donations to our Innovation for Health and Wellness Fund.
Since our founding, we have provided our services regardless of one’s ability to pay. About 10% of our residents receive partial to full subsidies. We never have, and never will, turn away a resident for financial reasons.
Support those in hardship through donations to our Financial Assistance Fund.
