Easterseals’ mission is helping those with challenges to live, learn, work and play within their communities. For Veterans, that often hinges upon their ability to access their benefits ... which often proves to be a challenge in itself.
The fact is, there is a wide range of government benefits for Veterans. There are also a growing number of private and non-profit organizations anxious to give-back to Veterans -- in recognition of their service—by assisting them with other needs that are not addressed by their government benefits.
Ironically though, many Veterans are “falling through the cracks” -- they are either not aware of their full range of benefits and choices or they don’t know how to access them. Plus Veterans often have difficulty asking for help, especially in their personal lives; as young Servicemembers, they were taught to take pride in self-sufficiency and to value resourcefulness.
