Jill's House provides respite for children with intellectual disabillites and their families in the Greater Washington, DC area. We serve boys and girls, ages six through seventeen, with intellectual disabillites without regard to race, or ethnicity.
Our mission is to be a safe haven to which parents can entrust their children, allowing the parents a time of rest. To ensure that parents and caregivers get a real break, typical siblings are welcome to stay at Jill's House. We believe that parents of children with intellectual disabillites need more support. Our hope is that our model will help change the way communities address the needs of children with special needs.
