Easter Seals RI Launches Veterans Count Rhode Island

Wakefield, RI -- Easter Seals RI will now provide assistance to Rhode Island service members, veterans of all eras, and their families with the launch of a Veterans Count Rhode Island. 

Veterans Count began with a question: How Can We Help Veterans, Service Members and Their Families?

In 2007, Easter Seals NH Board Member sought to bring comprehensive emergency aid to veterans and their families whose quality of life was significantly impacted by deployment to war zones, and Veterans Count was born.

As the leading model in New Hampshire, Maine, New York, and Vermont, Veterans Count is expanding to Rhode Island to honor those who have served and those who continue to serve! Veterans Count cuts through the red tape to provide critical and timely financial assistance and access to services when no other resource is available.

Funds raised through Veterans Count will provide services through Care Coordinators who work with military families in any situation to provide assistance for critical items such as transportation, housing, rent, fuel assistance, utilities, vehicle repair, gasoline, food, child care, tuition and medical bills.

Please join us at the Veterans Count Rhode Island Launch Party on Thursday, April 9, from 6:00-7:30pm at Iron Works Tavern in Warwick, RI, to learn more about Veterans Count Rhode Island.

Please RSVP to Judy at jfortier@eastersealsri.org to attend. Light refreshments and a cash bar will be available.
