For more than 70 years, Easter Seals of Southeastern Pennsylvania has been helping people with disabilities gain greater independence. Our mission is to provide exceptional services to ensure that all people with disabilities or special needs and their families have equal opportunities to live, learn, work and play in their communities. Our services include Approved Private School, special classrooms, summer programs, Assistive technology, early intervention programs and various outpatient speech, physical and occupational therapy programs. Children who receive these services are challenged with a variety of disabilities, including autism, cerebral palsy, Down Syndrome, spina bifida and physical and developmental delays. Funding for programs and services comes from a variety of sources. Over $1 million of our annual operating budget comes from charitable contributions. Support comes from corporate and foundation grants, individual gifts and special events.
