About Us

Ensuring you “live life your way.”

Over 50 years ago, the members of the Naval Officers’ Wives’ Club had a vision to build a retirement community to benefit the widows of military officers. Together, with the corresponding clubs of the Coast Guard and the Marine Corps, their vision was realized when the newly established Navy Marine Coast Guard Residence Foundation opened the doors in 1969 to what is now a vibrant senior living community, Vinson Hall Retirement Community.

Our Mission
We enrich the lives of those around us, so they are free to live life to the fullest.

Our Vision
We will lead in creating and delivering innovative solutions, so those around us can live life “their way.”

Our Values
Dignity, Security, and Friendship
