Respite for families with children with intellectual disabilities

Jill's House provides respite for children with intellectual disabilities and their families in the Greater Washington, DC area. Their mission is to be a safe haven for boys and girls ages six through seventeen to which parents can entrust their children, allowing the parents a time of rest. To ensure that parents and caregivers get a real break, typical siblings are welcome to stay at Jill’s House.

Used cell phones collected to aid victims of domestic violence

The Commission for Women collects used cell phones to help victims of domestic violence in partnership with Verizon Wireless’ Hope Line program, which collects used wireless phones and equipment and refurbishes or recycles them for resale. Funds raised are then contributed to nonprofit domestic violence shelters and prevention programs across the region. Victims of domestic violence also receive donated phones and airtime through this program. Cell phones can be left in the Human Services office, Room 316, Fairfax City Hall
