Local Impact Stories

Evan Carter closeup
Second generation of success

Like his mom, Evan was born with a hearing loss. Now they're both reaching goals with Easterseals services.

Phoenix Black closeup
Ready to soar!

Phoenix was born more than three months early with serious medical conditions, delays, and cerebral palsy. Now the sky's the limit for this local 5-year-old!

Sophia Encarnacion closeup
What a difference a year makes!

Sophia reaches for her goals with curiosity, determination, and Easterseals services.

Ellie-Jane smiling close-up
Living a dream by dancing

When other children were learning to stand, walk and run, Ellie-Jane could only crawl. At age 6, a dream came true when she danced in the Children’s Nutcracker ballet!

Craig Doninger closeup
Always moving forward

An accident couldn't stop Craig Doninger, who keeps moving forward toward his goals.

Guadalupe close-up photo
The gift of hearing is the gift of learning

Hearing tests can be scary for a child with a disability who doesn't speak English, but not for Guadalupe. She has fun and feels at home at the Easterseals Rehabilitation Center.

Maddie J closeup
A taste of independence

Children achieve so many "firsts" on their way to independence. Saying first words, taking first steps, or in Maddie's case, eating solid food for the first time - they're all milestones to be celebrated!

Michelle Schmitt square close-up photo
The journey back to an active life

A spinal cord injury took Michelle's ability to walk. But it didn't take her determination to return to her active lifestyle and regain her independence.

Charlie Joyner closeup
Always a good day!

Charlie's cerebral palsy doesn’t stop him from pursuing his dreams and sharing his joy.

Sandy Ford close-up photo
A lifetime of independence

Sandy’s life-long relationship with Easterseals started when she was just 3 years old, and she's been reaching goals ever since.
