When Miles Reidy first toured The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Inter-generational Center, he was immediately struck that the facility provided care for adults, seniors and children. “It’s such a smart idea,” Miles says. “It was clear that Easter Seals had figured out something.”
Easterseals DC MD VA is the affiliate serving Washington, D.C., Maryland, and Northern Virginia. For nearly 100 years, Easter Seals has been at the forefront of providing exceptional services to ensure that all people with disabilities or special needs, military, veterans, and their families have equal opportunities to live, learn, work, and play in our community. Our community-based programs are designed to support and strengthen families, enrich the lives of individuals with disabilities, create stronger communities, and reduce system-wide health care costs.
We work through public-private partnerships to provide services in the most efficient manner possible. These traits were demonstrated in the opening our Harry & Jeanette Weinberg Inter-Generational Center, which has quickly become an international model of excellence for delivering superior outcomes including creating meaningful connections between generations. It was opened through visionary partnership among local, state, and national government as well as private individual, corporate, and foundation investment. The shared resources created a maximum return on investment for the community.
