Our Mission

Easterseals South Florida has been serving families in South Florida for nearly 80 years. Our mission is to provide exceptional services, education, and outreach so that people living with disabilities can live, learn, work and play. We want every child in our Head Start, early education, and special education programs to reach his/her full potential and every adult living with Alzheimer’s or other memory disorder—and their caregivers - to live the fullest and most dignified life possible.
