Our community supports program is designed to empower young adults and adults with disabilities to live independent and rewarding lives in their community. We provide support so that all can successfully explore volunteer, recreation and educational opportunities while developing critical life skills, participating in community life and engaging in satisfying activities. All services are customized based on each individual’s goals and interests.
Only at Easterseals!
We offer an activity fund so that financial barriers will not prohibit you from achieving your aspirations or goals. Participants have used the fund to take classes, join the YMCA, attend a baseball game, visit a museum and more. You can read about one participant’s experience here. Let us open doors to new opportunities for you.
Community-based experiences and activities:
VOLUNTEERING. Use your skills and talents to help nonprofit organizations with missions that line up with your interests. Love pets? Help take care of them at the local shelter. What about serving others? The food pantries could use your help! The opportunities are endless.
RECREATION AND SOCIAL ACTIVITIES. Explore your community and the many fun and interesting things available where you live. Enjoy current hobbies and find new ones. Ice skating, bowling, movies, baseball, hockey, theater, music and more are at your doorstep.
COMMUNITY ACCESS. Learn how to access your community by developing skills that support independence. We will help you learn how to use public transportation, do your shopping, recycle, manage a budget, do your laundry – or whatever else you want to learn!
