Israel was born with Spina Bifida and his challenges seemed insurmountable. Easterseals knew that employment opportunities would open doors, so Israel started working on our EnviroShred line and then progressed to janitorial work. Today, Israel is able to live a productive life.

Delaina, a widowed Veteran mother of two, has taken her life in an upward direction with the help of Easterseals Veterans Rally Point.
