JP Engelbrecht first gave to the Easterseals Rehabilitation Center in 5th grade. Now he is a member of the local Presidents' Council because “being a Presidents’ Council member is crucial to keeping the mission of Easterseals strong and moving forward.”
The Easter Seals Rehabilitation Center's Supervised Group Living program is now enrolling adult residents with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Our nonprofit, client-centered organization has more than 25 years of group home experience! If you or a family member are in need of a caring, home-like, structured environment, call 812-437-2617; email Christy Gogel or Suzanne Ailstock; or contact us online.
Home is a special place to feel secure, comfortable, and encouraged. For many people with multiple and significant disabilities, that special place is an Easterseals Rehabilitation Center group residence.
Nine supervised long-term group homes are located in residential neighborhoods in Evansville, Newburgh, and Mt. Vernon, Indiana. Eight adults share each home, and 24-hour care is provided by caring, professional staff members.
Services for residents include individual goal planning, therapeutic and recreational supplies, food and personal supplies, and transportation for community access. Day program opportunities are also available.
Parents and other family members are encouraged to maintain a close relationship with residents and can continue to act as legal guardians. Home visits as often as every weekend are welcomed.
Group home services are funded primarily through Indiana’s Medicaid program, with eligibility determined by the state. Easterseals Rehabilitation Center staff can assist families in the process.
