About Us

Home / About Us

Jill’s House celebrates children with special needs and provides much-needed relief to their families in the greater Washington DC area. We serve boys and girls, ages six through seventeen, with intellectual disabilities without regard to race, religion, or ethnicity. Jill’s House provides a safe, fun place full of adventure and tailor-made activities to children with special needs while giving their parents and caregivers desperately-needed time to rest and recharge. To ensure that parents and caregivers get a real break, typical siblings are welcome to stay at Jill’s House.

Our hope is that our model will help change the way communities address the needs of families with children with special needs.
