About the Knights of Pythias

Our name was changed from The Pythian Home to Knights of Pythias Active Retirement Center. But, our Mission Statement remains the same: “We provide affordable housing, one full meal per day, and twenty-four hour security. We have added other amenities along the way. But, our warm caring atmosphere remains unchanged.” Residents do not need to be a member of the Knights of Pythias Retirement Center in Vancouver, WA to live here. We accommodate seniors from the community who are 62 years of age or older and younger disabled residents. Our retirement center residents live in unfurnished apartments equipped with a kitchenette containing regular sized appliances, a garbage disposal and pantry. Read more...
