Our mission is to provide services that ensure children and adults with disabilities have equal opportunities to live, learn, work, and play.
We have a strong person-centered approach to all services focusing on the power of unlocking every individual'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.
Veterans services and resources are not always the easiest to navigate! Massveteran.com makes specific skills and information more accessible thus making returning to civilian life much easier. An array of services, referrals, and programs are crafted by local Veterans in Massachusetts.
"Here’s what we wish we knew more about when we returned home from service." Adam, Veteran & Director Easterseals Veteran Services.
Easterseals Veteran services prioritize social groups and bonding with other Veterans through exercise and recreation. Let’s Get Together! Come out with us to meet some new people and participate in an activity, see your community has to offer!
We are immensely grateful to bring neighbors together for the Enduring Freedom Community Concert headlining the 215th Army Band of the Massachusetts National Guard. This special event will acknowledge the 20th anniversary of September 11, remember those who lost their lives in these terrorist attacks on our land, and raise awareness about the unique needs of Post-9/11 Veterans who sacrificed so much during Operations Enduring Freedom, Iraqi Freedom, New Dawn, Inherent Resolve and the missions that continue around the world.
