A Quiet Place to Call Home

Tucked away off a busy street in Georgetown, is a comfortable home for senior women in need.

Founded in 1868 for Civil War widows, the Aged Woman’s Home of Georgetown continues to serve women in Washington, DC today.

The Home is a historic residence for indigent women, physically capable of independent living. The Home offers the emotional support, companionship, and security associated with group living. Learn more about the services provided »

The first significant donation to the Home came from W. W. Corcoran, the founder of the Corcoran Gallery of Art. In the past, additional funding came from the guests themselves in the form of laundry and mending. Now, the Home relies upon the generosity of the neighboring community and friends, many of whom volunteer needed services or make financial donations to the Home and gifts to our Guests.
