Easterseals Southern Georgia is currently looking for dedicated individuals to become a home provider for children or adults with disabilities. Host homes or life sharing arrangements are a part of the services we provide.
Easter Seals Southern Georgia's capital campaign has raised over $300,000 since it launched the campaign in February last year. The goal is $500,000. The money goes to building a new and bigger Megan's House so that more families can utilize the respite home.
Family Support is a broad based category that serves children and adults, ages 3 and up, who have intellectual/development disabilities and autism. The goal of family support is to keep families together, until the individual with a disability chooses to live independently.
Easterseals offers services designed to help adults learn - and often re-learn - basic functions, master skills needed to develop and thrive. Although individuals often seek out Easterseals for help with employment problems, significant issues in other life areas often negatively affect employability. Certain non-core services have proven valuable in the pursuit of employability and employment independence.
Job Readiness and Pre Placement Training:
Job Readiness and Pre Placement Training gives individuals with disabilities an opportunity to develop job seeking and job retention skills.
One of the barriers to transportation independence is often a lack of driver's license. Easterseals Southern Georgia provides classroom training. The fee-sponsored service is paid for by the DOL Rehabilitation Services.
