Help Children Like Mine Reach Their Potential

My name is Rachel Shuman. I live in Silver Spring and I'm the single mom of two bright, busy small sons, Auggie and Henry. Let me tell you how Easterseals helped us.
When Auggie was three and Henry was a baby, I learned that Auggie is on the autism spectrum. He was clearly not happy in his current daycare and toilet training had become an issue. I wasn't feeling good about leaving Henry there either. I needed a place where they both could thrive and a friend recommended Easterseals.

Holiday Cheer at the Easterseals Respite Program
The Easterseals Respite Program brought holiday cheer to our “Little Warriors” and military families in December. Festivities included a visit from Santa, face painting, arts and crafts, holiday-themed games, and a photo booth!
Good Shepherd Ministries Annual Christmas Banquet
For many of the adults we care for at Easterseals Adult Day Services in Hagerstown, the Annual Holiday Banquet hosted by Good Shepherd Ministries is the highlight of their year. All participants in the program received personalized gifts and took pictures with Santa!
Critter Connections in The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Inter-Generational Center
Rabbits and turtles and snakes, oh my! Participants of all ages and abilities enjoyed an animal presentation from Critter Connections. This fun and hands-on educational program featured 20 animals, including rabbits, guinea pigs, a variety of tortoises, turtles and small geckos.

Stories From Our Clients

James
James' Story

James began receiving child care at Easterseals when he was about 4 months old. His parents had noticed that his leg turned in slightly since birth; shortly before starting at Easterseals, it was discovered that James had a condition known as bilateral congenital pseudoarthrosis of the tibia.

Mikey
Mikey's Story

For most families, the birth of a child is a joyous occasion. For the Inzeo family, Mikey’s birth was a day of emotional struggle, and fear of the unknown. Mike (Mikey's father) was trying to do it all for his family, and was quickly burning out. He needed help, and Easterseals was there to help him.
