Navy Marine Coast Guard Residence Foundation has had a singular purpose for more than half a century: to support Vinson Hall Retirement Community.
In 1959, the Naval Officers’ Wives’ Club of Washington D.C. had a vision to build a retirement community to benefit the widows of Navy officers. At the time, a Navy officer’s pension did not transfer to his wife after his death, leaving many widows with insufficient funds for retirement. Members of the club launched a decade-long campaign to fundraise, lobby and build a place where Navy widows could live in dignity, security and friendship throughout their older years.
In 1969, their vision was realized when Vinson Hall Retirement Community opened its doors for Navy, Marine and Coast Guard widows and couples. Today, retired officers or their families who served in all branches of the military and federal government leaders or their families are welcome.
Navy Marine Coast Guard Residence Foundation has been an integral part of this vision from the beginning, raising funds to support the residents and staff of this unique senior living community.
We enrich the lives of those around us, so they are free to live life to the fullest.
We will lead in creating and delivering innovative solutions, so those around us can live life “their way.”
Dignity, Security, and Friendship
