The devastating damage from Hurricane Florence has not stopped Easterseals UCP employees from serving adults and children living with special needs and mental health challenges. While hundreds of staffers have suffered losses and destruction, they have put their personal issues aside, and continue meeting the needs of the individuals they serve.
For Sarah, a new front-line supervisor, a giant tree destroyed her home. Instead of tending to the personal challenges of losing her home, Sarah went to help a 65-year-old woman she assists. This elderly woman with mental health challenges lives alone and has no family. Sarah stepped right in bringing her food, water and ice from a local church, along with arranging food deliveries for a week.
Sarah’s story is one of hundreds of personal sacrifice to help those who can’t help themselves. Many Easterseals UCP employees are out of a home and out of work due to extreme flooding and damage.
