Support and Empowerment for Young Disabled Women

Thrive with Us!

The Easterseals Thrive program facilitates personal growth and empowerment for disabled women during life transitions. During these challenging periods, the most valuable sources of encouragement come from those who have experience. Our book club is just one Thrive platform for adults to connect with younger women by sharing their personal stories, from their first heartbreaks and first loves, to first jobs.

We’re here to promote the importance of community and disability pride through outreach. This is your home base to follow our current events, get advice, connect with our active social media-based supports and more!
