Israel's Story

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's Story

Delaina, a widowed Veteran mother of two, has taken her life in an upward direction with the help of Easterseals Veterans Rally Point. Arriving at our doors unemployed and facing eviction, this U.S Navy Veteran now finds herself with stable employment, more time with her family and the opportunity to volunteer in the community.

ladonna
LaDonna's Story

LaDonna was born with a congenital medical condition that has restricted her mobility and confined her to a wheelchair for much of her life. With the help of her therapists, intense PT, and a persistent will, LaDonna has started walking with assistive devices. Challenges remain but as she enters her Senior year of college next year, her dream is to walk across the auditorium stage and receive her diploma.
