Military & Veteran Services

The crisis facing the nation in meeting the physical and mental health needs of the Armed Forces having served in Iraq and Afghanistan is overwhelming and continues to grow. Thousands of injured military service members are returning home with hopes of successfully transitioning to civilian life. Many communities are not equipped to respond appropriately to their unique need, nor are they aware of how to best work with military and Veterans systems in the process.

Easterseals’ newly added Military & Veterans services respond to this call to action. As the largest provider of disability-related services to individuals with disabilities and their families, Easterseals offers military and Veterans systems of care with viable options to support and augment current reintegration efforts for veterans in communities across our nation.

Easterseals New Jersey is currently working diligently with local organizations to construct program offerings that work to fill the gaps of service for veterans and existing service members in our great state. To find out what we have in the works or to ensure notification when our programs launch, please contact Chief Programs Officer, Shelley Samuels at ssamuels@nj.easterseals.com
