Overview of Easter Seals Greater Washington-Baltimore Region, Inc.

Easter Seals Greater Washington-Baltimore Region (Easter Seals GWBR)
(www.gwbr.easterseals.com) serves Washington DC, Maryland, and Virginia. For more than 75
years, we have been at the forefront as a recognized leader 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 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 most recently in the opening our InterGenerational
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.

Easter Seals GWBR delivers exceptional services through a network of 19 sites and provides
Adult Medical Day Care, Senior+, Early Child Development and Education, Family Respite, and
Workforce Development services where 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.

Our unique and dedicated staff of over 200 professionals includes specialists in education,
therapy, senior services, social work, assistive technology, nursing, and related professions. In
