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.
Easter Seals’ Military & Veterans services respond to this call to action. As the largest provider of disability-related services to individuals with disabilities and their families, Easter Seals offers military and Veterans systems of care with viable options to support and augment current reintegration efforts.
