Easterseals Midwest is led by an executive team comprised of nonprofit industry leaders. The combined talent of this group has steered the agency into the #13 position of the St. Louis area's largest nonprofit organizations on the St. Louis Business Journal’s 2014 listing.
Easterseals Midwest's executive team drives the agency's mission by creating the vision, establishing the culture, setting the strategic direction, leading operational success, and ensuring organizational sustainability. The team also strives to build an organization that will meet the growing demand for services for individuals with developmental disabilities, including autism, across the state of Missouri.
For nearly 100 years, our mission to change the way the world defines and views disability has been a guiding force. We are dedicated to helping people with disabilities live independent, fulfilling lives, while defending their civil rights and making the world a more inclusive place.
In this strategic plan, we clarified our mission and core values, while examining the internal and external forces that shape our strategic efforts.
We have identified opportunities for qualitative and quantitative growth and have begun deeper discussions surrounding the five functions of our organization: Advocacy, Development, Growth, Infrastructure, and Talent.
Within this plan, we are mapping the future of our organization and looking forward as the industry leader in advocacy and disability support. Together, we are building communities where all people – regardless of ability –
have an equal opportunity to reach their goals, dreams, and aspirations.
