"Your life and mine shall be valued not by what we take... but by what we give." Those words, spoken by Easterseals' founder Edgar Allen over 90 years ago, began a movement. Today, we're thankful to you for being a part of that movement. With over 50 million Americans living with disabilities, our work is far from complete. We encourage you to help us call attention to the experience of people with disabilities, and to raise awareness of and advocate for the services they need to live, learn, work and play in their communities.
Jonathan is 13 years old, he has Autism Spectrum Disorder. His condition affects his social relationships, academic and self-care skills. He is a kind boy with a bright mind. Having positive and exciting camp experiences is so helpful for Jonathan. It helps him feel less “different” and more like everyone else. He is building memories that will last his whole life. – Tina, Jonathan’s mom.
