St. Joseph's House is a 501(c)(3) in-home daycare, operated out of the LaHood home, serving school-aged youth (5-21) with intellectual and developmental disabilities. We provide a loving home-away-from home environment, enabling parents to work and enjoy opportunities for respite.


At St. Joseph’s House, all different abilities are recognized and honored; each child is celebrated for the tremendous gifts he/she brings to our home and our world. 


SJH is also a place where parents, siblings, and friends find support and steadfast friendship in one another as their children grow with us through the years. The children and families of St. Joseph’s House often face daunting circumstances and navigate complex systems. As they are able, families contribute a nominal fee for all of our services. 


Relying almost entirely on the support of private donors and small foundations, St. Joseph's House has served more than 60 families since opening its doors 40 years ago. 


In June 2022, St. Joseph's House moved to Hyattsville, MD after 39 years in Silver Spring. The move has extended our geographical reach to families in need of our services, and allowed to us expand our program hours. Thank you for supporting us at this exciting time in our history!
