Easterseals Eastern Pennsylvania offers a variety of programs that are appropriate for adults ages 18 years and older with disabilities and other special needs. We invite you to browse through our wide array of options and to experience as many of our services as you can. Our programs are designed to provide meaningful educational and social opportunities in the community.
Our Employment Services program provides customized solutions for adults with disabilities (age 18 and older and no longer in high school) in support of competitive-integrated employment. Through an agreement with the Office of Vocational Rehabilitation (OVR), we are able to offer community-based work assessments and supported employment/job coaching to help you prepare for, find and retain jobs of your choice.
We offer individual and small group programming designed to empower young adults and adults with disabilities to live independent and rewarding lives in their community. Participants explore volunteer, recreation and educational opportunities to discover how they can connect to their community and peer network. The program provides the support they need to develop critical life skills, participate in community life and engage in satisfying activities of their own choosing. All services are provided in the community and scheduling is individualized based on participant needs. Easterseals now offers an activity fund to further enhance the experience.
Easterseals Camp Growing Green is our overnight camp held on the beautiful campus of the Pocono Environmental Education Center in the Pocono Mountains. Overnight camp provides incredible opportunities for growth and development in a safe, nurturing environment staffed by Easterseals trained counselors. Campers gain environmental awareness and enjoy traditional camp activities like hiking, canoeing, sports, and arts & crafts. Campers may participate in a hands-on employment exploration experience, spending part of each day exploring different career tracks. Growing Green runs for 6 weeks each summer and campers attend for one or more weeks.
