Disabled Veterans and Employers:
Moving From Surviving to Thriving

Disabled Veterans and employers

Our veterans protected and served us all – now we need to do the same for them. Less than half of disabled veterans say they have enough money to cover healthcare expenses. We can do better for our veterans.

Our Work in Action

The needs of veterans and military families are evolving, not disappearing. Easterseals specializes in identifying the needs of veterans and military families, particularly with employment, job training and family respite opportunities. We work to make solutions easily accessible in communities in the following areas.

Advocacy & Education

Our advocacy team works to influence federal and state legislation affecting veterans and military families and actively engages with Congressional staff in pursuit of these goals. Our primary focus is to ensure that Veterans and military families have access to appropriate services and supports.

Employment Programs and Job Training

Our employment programs provide the necessary tools to achieve and maintain meaningful employment and a steady income. We offer skills training, job search assistance, employment preparation and guidance. For example, in the Washington Metropolitan Area, Easterseals established the Veteran Staffing Network, which has as placed 2,700 people with jobs in 37 states since its inception.

Health and Wellness Programs

We aim to reach as many veterans and military families as possible to provide health resources and programs, including adult day and medical rehabilitation services.

Caregiving and Respite

We strive to ensure military caregivers can access what they need to take on the enormous responsibility of caregiving—often, while still needing to work, navigate family life and take care of themselves. We embrace and support military caregivers through respite services, caregiver training, and connections to local resources. One such partnership is the ARCH (Access to Respite Care and Help) National Network. They offer caregiving and respite programs all over the United States.
