A unique center in Virginia is offering kids with disabilities a vacation spot of their own while giving mom and dad a much needed break.

The brainchild of a pastor and his wife who have a daughter with disabilities, Jill’s House opened this fall to offer respite care for families of children ages 6 to 17-years with intellectual disabilities. The state-of-the-art facility features everything from an accessible swimming pool to a sensory room, art center, playground and gym.

Moreover, top of the line technology like a ceiling track to move individuals from bed to bath and a special locking system to prevent bolting allow Jill’s House to accommodate kids with a wide range of needs.

At just $75 a night, parents who’ve hardly had a night out at the movies in years say they’re making Jill’s House a regular part of their routine. Not only do they relish the break, but they say their kids can’t wait to return as well, reports The Washington Post. To read more click here.
