About UsAbout Goodwin House

Rooted in the values of the Episcopal faith, Goodwin House is a not-for-profit organization with a mission to uplift the lives of older adults and those who care for them. For more than 50 years, our vision has been to reimagine aging. From our beautiful residential communities to our innovative foundation, our work reflects the belief that aging is something we all share. We are all aging, all fully alive. And with the right support, we can face the future together, without fear.

Goodwin House Alexandria and Goodwin House Bailey’s Crossroads are our senior living Life Plan Communities, designed to support the physical, mental and spiritual needs of residents. Heated pools, fitness centers, art centers, educational programs, cultural events and outings are just parts of the whole. Through our Creating Home initiative, we also focus on the intangible things that turn a house into a home and a set of homes into a community. The smell of freshly baked bread. The sound of laughter or singing. The joy of seeing something you planted bloom in spring. This is life at Goodwin House.

Just as we create a sense of home in our communities, we also strive to bring a sense of community into people’s homes. For those adults age 55 and better who choose to age in place, our Goodwin House at Home program offers a support structure and care package that evolves as needs change.

From hospice care and 24-hour nursing support to short-term rehab or memory care, our healthcare services are holistic and personalized, whether you’re a member of our community or a resident in the Northern Virginia region. Compassion, excellence and generosity are equally important to us, a philosophy exemplified by the Goodwin House Foundation. This 501(c)(3) organization provides financial support to both residents and team members.
