Our mission

Easterseals provides exceptional services, education, outreach, and advocacy so that people living with autism and other disabilities can live, learn, work, and play in our communities. Easterseals has been helping individuals with disabilities and special needs, and their families, live better lives for over 90 years. From child development centers to physical rehabilitation and job training for people with disabilities, Easterseals offers a variety of services to help people with disabilities address life's challenges and achieve personal goals.

Easterseals Midwest has been active for more than 50 years, and is part of Easterseals' century-old network of high-quality service providers helping to build communities where all people with developmental disabilities have equal opportunities to realize their goals, dreams, and aspirations. Currently, we support nearly 4,000 children and adults with developmental disabilities learn, live, work, and participate in the community.

We believe that all members of our community, regardless of ability, should have the opportunity to live, learn, work, play, and act.

Live
We provide hands-on, comprehensive support to help people reach their full potential—regardless of disability or challenges. Families and individuals can choose from a variety of individualized programs spanning Autism Services, Community Living Services, and therapy.

Work
We offer a variety of training and placement services that help people prepare for the workforce — for many, meaningful work is often the key to overcoming challenges and engaging with the community.

Learn
We provide programs designed to help children and adults learn — and sometimes re-learn — basic functions and master skills needed to develop and thrive at all stages of life.

Play
We offer fun, supportive programs where children and adults can relax, connect with friends and gain new experiences.

Act
Disability touches us all. Through volunteering, advocating, donating, and participating in events, we offer everyone an opportunity to be inspired and take action.
