The power of having a diagnosis can transform your child's life. For a young girl that came to Easterseals for neuropsychological testing, her Autism Spectrum Disorder diagnosis changed everything. With reduced anxiety and stronger coping skills, she was able to attend her high school prom!
A U.S Marine Corps Veteran and single parent of a special needs child, Chris was having difficulty balancing work with raising his disabled son. Easterseals stands with our American Warriors & we provided employment coaching, professional clothing, and more. Now, Chris is able live a meaningful life post-deployment. Donate today to help veterans like Chris live their best lives!
Vets Helping Vets Peer-to-Peer Support Groups for Male and Female Veterans in Windsor and Rocky Hill
We invite all male and female veterans to join us for conversation and refreshments! No topic off limits. Gatherings are hosted at both Veterans Rally Point locations in Norwich and Rocky Hill (on CTVA campus). Click the link for more details on how to register.
The goal of this program is to provide services that assist at risk of experiencing homelessness veterans to reintegration in the community and into meaningful employment within the labor force. We offer a structured, individually designed case management plan to assist the veteran to become employable and self sufficient. The program is currently being offered in Rocky Hill, CT.
