CDC

Child Development Center (CDC)
Easter Seals provides inclusive, early intervention and education for children with and without disabilities from six weeks old until kindergarten. We offer full-day, year-round child development, parental support and inter-generational activities to maximize the physical, cognitive, social and emotional development of every child regardless of their family's ability to pay. 

ADS

Adult Day Services (ADS)
Easter Seals Adult Day Center provides daily care for a diverse population of seniors and adults while supporting their family caregivers and delaying or even preventing the need for nursing home care. Our skilled staff of registered nurses, social workers, certified nursing aides, physical and occupational therapists, and recreational directors are highly trained to address even the most complex medical issues and provide comprehensive and compassionate care for each individual in the program. 

IG-Respite

Respite & Caregiver Support
 
Easter Seals Respite Services provide critical support to families who care for children with disabilities or special needs. With our help, parents get a break from caregiving duties, allowing them to focus on other family members, or themselves, while preventing burnout and keeping families whole. Caregiving services include center-based respite days, which take place monthly at the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Inter-Generational Center, and 40 hours per month of in-home respite care for military families. 

 VSN

Veteran Staffing Network (VSN)
Easter Seals Veteran Staffing Network provides coaching, groundbreaking online assessment and training to help veterans build the skills and confidence they need to develop a long-term career, not just get a job. The VSN operates as a staffing agency, which helps employers meet their hiring goals with highly skilled, trained and prepared veterans. Furthermore, the VSN understands the job does not end at the placement. Continued support is provided as needed for veterans and their families to ensure lifelong success.
