With an individualized approach to all services, we focus on the power of unlocking every person's full potential.
Easterseals Massachusetts serves all regions of Massachusetts creating a thriving network for the Disability and Veteran communities. Our therapists and specialists are experts in their field providing the most exceptional services in a wide range of settings.
"Quite often we work with people who would not be able to access assistive technology any other way, and the gratitude I hear from clients and their families underscores just how meaningful our work truly is..."
This November we're spotlighting our underfunded disability programs and services that ensure equal opportunities for every person to live, learn, work, and play.
Your support allows Easterseals to enrich education through the College Navigator program, uplift Veterans with peer groups and crucial resources, expand employment through Assistive Technology and Pre-Employment Transition Services, and elevate the community with accessible recreation. We're over halfway to reaching our goal of raising $80,000 during this Month of Giving! Click the link to make a gift that has a lasting impact.
