As the world reels from the impact of COVID-19, we here at Easterseals Washington feel a huge sense of responsibility to all of our stakeholders. The families that we serve are under extraordinary pressure to stay up to speed with the news, weigh competing values, and make daily decisions that affect their physical and emotional health. Likewise, our employees and volunteers are motivated to serve, and we are finding creative ways to do just that!
Status of our Programs
Our Adult Services Programs in Bellevue & Bremerton continue to suspend services through April 7; however, we are providing nurse consultation for our Adult Day Health program participants via telemedicine.
We are consulting with the participants in our Supported Employment and Community Inclusion programs so that they can maintain their jobs, apply for temporary unemployment benefits, plan for future volunteer engagements, etc.
Our Community Swim Program at Camp Stand By Me hopes to re-open on April 21 – please stay tuned. Camp’s respite weekends are evaluated as the dates near, and Summer Camp is on track to start on time.
Our Olympic Peninsula Autism Center continues to deliver behavioral health therapy for children on the Autism Spectrum and education for their parents.
We are proud to be providing essential and inclusive child care services in Seattle at Growing Years and in SeaTac at Angle Lake with a modified capacity model.
Jane's House Child Development Center in Yakima hopes to re-open on April 1; and, our ECEAP team is teaching preschool children and supporting families via technology-assisted remote education.
