Easter Seals provides exceptional services, education, outreach, and advocacy so that people living with autism and other disabilities can live, learn, work and play in our communities. Easter Seals has been helping individuals with disabilities and special needs, and their families, live better lives for over 90 years. From child development centers to physical rehabilitation and job training for people with disabilities, Easter Seals offers a variety of services to help people with disabilities address life's challenges and achieve personal goals.
Easter Seals Walk With Me is an event to raise awareness and support for families living with disabilities! Join hundreds of passionate people in your community for a day full of entertainment, fun and, of course, our signature walk! Every walk event is different -- your walk could be at a local school or at the aquarium. But every walk is a lifeline of funds that enables your local Easter Seals to continue providing vital services and support to people with disabilities and their families.
Easter Seals West Kentucky
Easter Seals West Kentucky represents nearly half a century of helping people with physical and mental challenges to gain greater independence by providing quality services. Established in 1954 through the merger of the McCracken County Cerebral Palsy Organization and the Crippled Children's Clinic, Easter Seals West Kentucky serves 19 counties in western Kentucky, plus areas in southern Illinois and southeastern Missouri.
The Crippled Children's Clinic, which was sponsored by the Charity League of Paducah, began in 1934 and served crippled children in Paducah and McCracken County. The McCracken County Cerebral Palsy Organization opened in 1952, thanks to a generous gift from the Paducah Lions Club to help with the first year operating costs. Both the Paducah Lions Club and Charity League of Paducah continue their generous investments to Easter Seals West Kentucky.
