My League Story:
Mother of Bobby, Day Habilitation Participant
“When The League first closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, Bobby didn’t have anything to do. Once virtual programming started through League University, it made a big difference for Bobby to be able to connect with his friends again. He really looks forward to the virtual classes, he learns a lot, and it gives him an opportunity for connection. When I was sick with COVID-19, the virtual programming gave him something to do while I was recovering. He did an amazing job holding it together. We can’t wait to come back to The League in person soon!”

-Mother of Bobby, Day Habilitation Participant
The League would like to thank Bobby and his mother for sharing their story with us. If you have a story that you would like to share about how The League has positively impacted you or a loved one’s life, please email Tue Trinh at
The League Celebrates 94 Years!
On April 30th, The League celebrated 94 years of providing services to individuals with disabilities in the greater Baltimore community.
Did You Know? Through the efforts of Mrs. Isabell K. Frank, William S. Baer and the Council of Jewish Women, The League was started in a single room on E. Franklin Street in 1927 to provide services to crippled children. During the succeeding years, increased demand on existing facilities and the addition of many new services resulted in several moves, until, in 1964, the present headquarters on Cold Spring Lane was completed. A wing was added in 1968 to provide recreational programs for people with disabilities, which included a gymnasium and heated therapeutic swimming pool.
The League has and continues to transition our services as we adapt to the changing needs of the COVID-19 pandemic. In case you missed it, we invite you to take five minutes of your time to view a video, showcasing the work happening at The League now, specifically throughout the pandemic. Great Things Are Happening at The League!

A Note from Our President & CEO
Dear Friends of The League,
I was thrilled to have the opportunity last week to celebrate The League and 94 years of providing services to the greater Baltimore community. We continue to meet the needs of individuals with disabilities, and could not do this work without your support. 

In response to the changing COVID-19 regulations, we continue to monitor and adjust our programming as needed. Here are a few updates I would like to share with you:

  • Day Habilitation is currently providing small group community programming.
  • Adult Medical Day plans to re-open to a reduced number of vaccinated participants in June. 
  • The League’s Wellness Center is open, and we hope to resume group exercise programs, albeit limited in size, by this June.  
  • Camp Greentop will welcome adult vaccinated campers in July.  
  • League University, our online portal, will continue to provide programs and services virtually while we ramp up access to our facility as safely as possible in the year ahead. 

Please continue to monitor our COVID-19 Updates section on our website for more information.

Through the generous support of our corporate partners, donors and volunteers, we successfully hosted the 4th Annual #OMGFOOD Event, virtually this year and exceeded our fundraising goal. If you did not have the opportunity to join us on April 24th, I invite you to take some time to view our 5-minute spotlight video we premiered during the event or watch the entire 30-minute program. The virtual program celebrated our work over the past year during the COVID-19 pandemic, and celebrated our direct support professionals and the important role they continue to play to support our individuals in services.

Thank you for staying in touch with The League, and for all that you do to support our mission.

Stay safe and be well.
David A. Greenberg
