Our Mission

The Washington Home is a non-profit organization that provides funding to entities that create and deliver innovative, compassionate and well-managed programs to improve the quality of life for elderly and/or terminally ill residents in the Washington, DC metropolitan area.  


Founded in 1888, The Washington Home until recently provided long-term care to residents of its nursing home facility in upper Northwest Washington DC and hospice care to patients in their own homes, and in the in-patient hospice wing of the nursing home. In recent years, the Board of Directors of The Washington Home has directed a repositioning of the organization by ceasing hands-on care and consolidating its financial resources to be deployed for maximum impact in accordance with its longstanding mission.
