Two-year-old Davian, who has Down Syndrome, is becoming more independent thanks to the hard work of staff at Dorothy Spainhour Child Development Center. He is feeding himself, following directions and interacting with classmates!
A big shout out to walkers, volunteers and sponsors for a successful Walk With Me Charlotte event. Easterseals UCP raised $35,000 to support programs for individuals living with mental illness, special needs and disabilities. You can still donate through November 30.
Damage caused by Hurricane Florence has forced the staff to find a temporary home for the Wilmington Child Development Center. The preschoolers are incredibly resilient and the staff is committed to continue services for children with special needs, autism and disabilities.
Every day, the Individual and Placement Services teams at Easterseals UCP train and guide adults with mental health challenges. The goal is find appropriate employment that will lead them to a life of independence. Those who maintained jobs, were awarded for their commitment.
We're grateful to donors who give their time and financial contributions which support the many programs for children and adults with special needs, disabilities and mental health challenges. Carol Reilly is one donor who stands out for her commitment to Easterseals UCP.
The Easterseals UCP EMPOWER staff in Wilmington made it a priority to open the center following Hurricane Florence. Staff has been providing respite and routine to families with children who are living with developmental disabilities. Read our story.
