"Tyler is now thriving since Champions for Children has opened to door for him to attend therapies that our family would otherwise not be able to afford" - Marcia, mother whose son received services from Champions for Children (read his story here)

The Champions for Children Program is designed to primarily assist children and families who do not meet the eligibility requirements for the TEFRA/Katie Beckett Medicaid program. The program will provide direct financial assistance and support services for Georgia's medically fragile and special needs children and their families. An Easter Seals Champions for Children Coordinator will work directly with families to determine eligibility, identify service needs as described by the family, and connect them with resources and services.

A description of the Champions for Children Program, the application for services and other information is available on the site. While the $500,000 in annual funding over the next five years will be a wonderful resource for families, we recognize that all needs will not be addressed. However, the Easter Seals Georgia Coalition is committed to serving the needs of children and families to the greatest extent possible using a family-friendly approach.
