Easterseals is leading the way to full equity, inclusion, and access through life-changing disability and community services. For more than 100 years, we have worked tirelessly with our partners to enhance quality of life and expand local access to healthcare, education, and employment opportunities. And we won’t rest until every one of us is valued, respected, and accepted.
Through our national network of affiliates, Easterseals provides essential services and on-the-ground supports to more than 1.5 million people each year — from early childhood programs for the critical first five years, to Autism services, to medical rehabilitation and employment programs, to veterans’ services, and more. Our public education, policy, and advocacy initiatives positively shape perceptions and address the urgent and evolving needs of the one in four Americans living with disabilities today.
Together, we’re empowering people with disabilities, families and communities to be full and equal participants in society.
We can't do it alone! Check out our list of annual and special events and help Easterseals Louisiana grow and expand our services througout the state. From fundraisers to community outreach events, we have numerous ways for you to get involved and support your local Easterseals.
