Our History and Your Community Support Set Us Apart

The Washington Home was founded in 1888 by Mrs. Charles Hill, a community resident, who recognized that chronically and terminally ill people, who could not be cared for at home, were placed in any kind of institution that would take them regardless of their needs. With financial support from a caring and generous community, Mrs. Hill opened what is known today as The Washington Home.

The on-going generosity of compassionate men and women like you helps us continue our 121-year history of caring for those who are aging and/or coping with chronic and terminal illnesses. The Washington Home is a non-profit, 501 (c) (3) organization that includes Community Hospices: Community Hospice of Maryland, Community Hospice of Virginia and Community Hospice of Washington and it's Inpatient Hospice Unit.

There are many types of giving that support our work: gifts of money; stocks; memorials and tributes honoring caregivers, loved ones and friends; in-kind gifts; and planned giving. And, we offer many ways to give that make it convenient for you to support our work. You may want to participate in one of our special events or donate your time as a volunteer. We appreciate however you are able to help us serve people who need care in the final phases of their lives. Donations are used to:

  • Offset the cost of caring for residents and terminally ill patients who do not have the means to pay for the services they receive
  • Help purchase supplies for a variety of daily activities conducted each day for our residents and patients
  • Maintain our 11-passenger resident bus
  • Purchase and maintain medical equipment
  • Provide free grief counseling services to children and adults coming to terms with the death of a beloved family member or friend
  • Underwrite the cost of our wish list items to enhance the lives of our residents
