For 75 years, Easterseals Capital Region & Eastern Connecticut has provided critical services and powerful advocacy so that people with disabilities and active military and veterans are provided with the resources they need to achieve their full potential in life. With tailored services in education, health, employment, and community, Easterseals is helping people – regardless of age or ability – participate fully in the community and in life. In schools, workplaces and communities, Easterseals is fostering an environment where every one of us is included and valued, respected and accepted in all aspects of society.
We would like to extend a heartfelt THANK YOU to all of our 2023 supporters- put into words by our Adult Day Support Program Manager, Nate Walker. We couldn't do what we do, without YOU.
