Our purpose is to change the way the world defines and views disabilities by making profound, positive differences in people’s lives every day.
With the help of our supporters we are “taking on disability together” and working to enrich the lives of people living with disabilities and special needs by providing opportunities to live, learn, work, and play in their communities!

Easterseals runs a variety of groups over the summer for children with special needs that have both a therapeutic component and a social, recreational side. Summer groups can be a great way to supplement traditional, school year therapies while having a fun experience!
Jumpstart is a free, home visiting program through Easterseals Joliet Region. We work with expecting families and those that have children aged 0-3 in surrounding counties. We provide developmental screenings and activities, parenting enrichment and support, and much more.
We offer a weekly family caregiver support group that provides an atmosphere of understanding and support for family caregivers to explore common difficulties and experiences that come with being the primary caregiver. Tuesdays at 11am at 212 Barney Drive, Joliet.
Child Care is available for children ages six weeks to six years in our program. Inclusive childcare is provided in three learning environments at Easterseals main center located at 212 Barney Drive in Joliet, Illinois.
