Whether providing recreational opportunities for children, respite care for families or helping children and adults with disabilities gain greater independence in everyday living, Easter Seals offers a variety of services to address life’s challenges and to help individuals achieve personal goals.

AmeriCorps is a national service organization, often described as “the domestic Peace Corps.” Over 85,000 members serve annually in thousands of local and national non-profits. Members commit to a term of 300, 900 or 1700 hours. Members receive comprehensive training and a living stipend. Upon successful completion, members earn an education award that can be applied toward current education costs, student loans or future education.
