Easterseals Delaware & Maryland’s Eastern Shore is celebrating 75 years of creating an inclusive community for local children and adults with disabilities, seniors, and their families. In 1948, Easterseals began serving a handful of children with disabilities in a small school in New Castle and a summer program in Sussex County. Today Easterseals spans the entire state of Delaware and has two locations on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. To deliver the wide range of services it offers, Easterseals employs approximately 250 people at eight locations. Although still recovering from the impact of the pandemic, last year the organization served more than 6,100 people with direct services and 28,800 in indirect services like education and training.
