Our Purpose & Mission:

For 75 years, our mission is simple, yet powerful. Easterseals Massachusetts provides essential services which ensure that children and adults with disabilities have equal opportunities to live, learn, work and play. We are a collaborative and community-based organization that can be found throughout the entire state.

Our occupational, physical and speech therapists, assistive technology specialists, as well as our youth, employment and transition teams, are experts in their fields and provide services in a wide range of settings.

Easterseals focuses on the full potential of every person and is changing the way the world defines and views disability by making profound, positive differences in people’s lives every day.
