Proud National Partners - $500,000+ Annually
CareSource, a nationally recognized leader in managed care, has committed $2.55 million to Easterseals. This gift will help Easterseals affiliates respond to disparities in healthcare, education, and employment exacerbated by the global pandemic among children and adults with disabilities, including veterans and seniors. The funding will also support Easterseals’ Project on Education and Community Health Equity, an initiative focused on addressing the educational and healthcare needs of children with disabilities, including children with disabilities of color, so they are kindergarten ready and can reach their full potential. Finally, funding will advance community engagement with Easterseals among CareSource’s growing workforce of more than 4,500.
