Our purpose at Easterseals Florida is to change the way the world defines and views disabilities by making profound, positive differences in people's lives every day. We do this by providing exceptional services, education, outreach, and advocacy so that people with disabilities can live, learn, work, and play in our communities. Nationally, Easterseals has been helping individuals with disabilities and special needs, along with their families, for more than 100 years. From child development centers, to employment services and job training, Easterseals offers a variety of services to help people with disabilities address life's challenges and achieve personal goals.
All of our facilities-based programs have now re-opened across the state. We are following all safety precautions as outlined by the CDC and have enacted appropriate safety response plans at each of our facilities.
