Here's Robert's Story

Robert Woodcock lost his father in August 2013. It was a devastating time for the 26-year-old and he began having suicidal thoughts. He felt lost, scared, confused, lonely, and anxious. It was difficult to cope. He reacted by making many 911 calls and more than 125 trips to the emergency room. At the time, Robert was living at home with family and also spent time with another agency exploring day and residential supports. Nothing seemed to work. To read more about Robert, click here.

Meet Shane!

Shane had a diving accident that left him a quadriplegic, when he was 17 years old. He turned to Easterseals for support. Shane gained greater independence, and made connections within his community through his art work, volunteer efforts and working at Hannaford. Annually, Easterseals supports over 280 people through our Community-Based Services. To watch Shane's full story click here.

Meet Patrick!

Three years ago, Patrick Brihan was a completely different person than he is today. He was a verbally aggressive 21-year old who lacked self-control and did not know how to interact politely with others due to his depression and anxiety. He had long hair that covered his eyes and would always wear a sweatshirt with the hood up. Patrick has a history of aggression and violence and has attempted to run away numerous times. He lied, lacked empathy for others, and was manipulative. He would not work, exercise, cook, or socialize with others, and showed no motivation for change. To learn more about Patrick, click here.
