The Army Officers' Wives' Club of the Greater Washington Area (AOWCGWA) is a non-profit organization seeking to enhance the quality of life of its members and the Military District of Washington community at large.
We offer friendship, support, volunteer opportunities, an online member group, and Zip Code Groups, to make it easier to connect to the military spouses who live near you. We share fun activities and maintain a close community for support and advice about unique activities available in the Washington DC area.
We raise funds through our Fort Myer Thrift Shop and provide scholarships and grants. If you love working with people and want to help raise money to better our military community, this is the place for you.
