Robert S. Wilson, Jr. Community Respite Program

Easterseals offers respite days for children with disabilities or special needs, and their siblings, including military and Wounded Warrior families. These fun, activity-oriented respite days support children and their families by providing one-on-one interaction between children and trained volunteers. The activities take place monthly at The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Inter-Generational Center in Silver Spring and include magicians, face painters, clowns, petting zoos and other engaging, hands-on activities.

Because this is based on the interest and availability of the volunteers, we cannot guarantee that all families who enroll in the program will be matched or how long it may take to find a match.

Bob Wilson believed that every person deserves a chance to live, learn, work and play in the community, including children with disabilities and special needs, “Little Warriors” – children of wounded warriors – and those who care for them. The Robert S. Wilson, Jr. Community Respite Program at Easterseals continues Bob’s legacy of leadership and volunteerism by providing critical support to these families.
