Easterseals Greater Washington-Baltimore Region (Easterseals GWBR) serves Washington, D.C., Maryland, and Northern Virginia. For more than 75 years, we have been at the forefront of providing exceptional services to ensure that all people with disabilities or special needs and their families have equal opportunities to live, learn, work, and play in our community.

Our services provide assistance to participants and their families find support, hope, medical care, and enjoyable activities.  In addition to serving the overall community, our programs place a special emphasis on the special needs of wounded warriors, veterans, active duty military, and their families. 

 

Services

Easterseals Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Inter-Generational Center
A high-quality, cost effective, national and regional model that unites services for children, adults, and their families under one roof, creating meaningful connections between generations and people with and without disabilities.

The Inter-Generational Center incorporates:

  • Early Education and Child Development Center
  • Adult and Senior Social/Medical Day Program
  • Assistive Technology and Therapy Center
  • Family Caregiver Resource Center
  • Respite Program
  • Education and Training Center
  • Military and Veterans’ Services

Adult Day Services
Extending Easterseals medical rehabilitation expertise, Easterseals adult day services meet daytime needs of adults with disabilities and older adults while promoting their dignity and independence. Easterseals partners with families to ensure a continuation of their high-standards of care. Licensed occupational, physical and speech/language therapists deliver services in a familiar environment “where it means the most.”

Child Development Centers
Meeting a growing need for high-quality child care for more than 20 million young children and their working parents, Easterseals offers child care for children ages 6 weeks to 5 years. Young children are welcomed to a unique environment where children of all abilities learn together.

Home and Community Therapy
Individualized occupational, physical, cognitive, and speech/language therapy services are provided for children and adults who attend our centers. In addition, outpatient therapy and therapy in individual’s homes, schools, and other day care facilities is available for individuals ages birth-100+.

Easterseals provides cutting edge therapy services to persons with disabilities in their natural environments such as their homes, schools or workplace. Licensed occupational, physical and speech/language therapists deliver services in a familiar environment “where it means the most.”

Family Friends Respite Program
Family Friends Respite Program is Easterseals’ inter-generational program that matches volunteers 55 years of age and older with a child with a disability in need of a friend. Volunteers spend a few hours per week playing, reading, spending time, and sharing their experience and skills with a child and family in need of extra support.

Family Caregiver Resource Center
Easterseals believes that serving people with disabilities cannot be fully achieved without supporting their family caregivers. Family caregivers, not social service agencies, nursing homes, or government programs are the mainstay underpinning long-term care for older persons and people with disabilities in the United States.

Military and Veterans Services

Returning home from military service after experiencing combat and adjusting to life—especially life with an injury or a disability—can be a complex, bewildering and extended process. The crisis facing the nation in meeting the physical and mental health needs of the 1.8 million members of the Armed Forces who have served in Iraq and Afghanistan is overwhelming and continues to grow. Thousands of injured military service members are returning home hoping to successfully transition to civilian life. Many communities are not equipped to respond appropriately to their unique needs, nor are they aware of how to best work with military and veterans systems in the process. Easterseals’ Military and Veterans Initiative responds to this call for action.
