Throughout the State of Vermont, Easter Seals is dedicated to helping families to live, learn, work, and play in their communities. We are the leading agency in the state in working hand-in-hand with the Department for Children and Families (DCF) to find family-centered solutions to problems. Many children suffer not only from the effects of their disabilities, but also from abuse, neglect, bullying, and lack of sufficient help and understanding. Easter Seals is known for finding practical, realistic solutions and helping parents understand and work with their school systems. We empower parents to be more effective in teaching, listening to, and in understanding their children’s needs. We offer direct assistance to our families to improve the situations they are dealing with.
Easter Seals Vermont offers practical, realistic assistance to foster parents, birth parents and kinship parents who are struggling to provide guidance and support to children who bear the emotional and behavioral scars of physical, sexual, and emotional abuse.
Services are available to any Vermont adoptive, kinship or legal guardianship family. Easter Seals offers consultation to treatment teams, advocacy, respite opportunities, and in-home parenting support.
Easterseals Military & Veterans Services, in partnership with Veterans Count, responds rapidly, efficiently and effectively to the unmet needs of service members, veterans, and their families to ensure that they can thrive in their communities through Care Coordination and emergency assistance.
