Easterseals’ purpose is to change the way the world defines and views disability by making profound, positive differences in people’s lives every day. We provide exceptional services, education, outreach, and advocacy so that people living with autism and other disabilities can live, learn, work and play in our communities. Easterseals offers a variety of services to help people address challenges and achieve personal goals throughout their life.
Save the Date! Helping people with disabilities is what we do at Easterseals...but we can't do it alone. One way to get involved is participating in an Easterseals event -- there's something for everyone.
Together we are stronger!

Help us make a real difference for real people. We must continue to remain steadfast in our mission and committed to the vision of an inclusive life for all abilities with endless possibilities. Together, we are stronger. Disabilities touch us all. Your support allows us to create fully inclusive lives for those we serve.
