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.
