Easter Seals is the leading non-profit provider of services for individuals with autism, developmental disabilities, physical and mental disabilities, and other special needs. For more than 85 years, Easter Seals has been offering help and hope to children and adults living with disabilities, and to the families who love them. Through therapy, training, education and support services, Easter Seals creates life-changing solutions so that people with disabilities can live, learn, work and play in their communities. For over 25 years, ESA has been a supporter of Easter Seals, raising more than $5.7 million.
Hope for Heroes
ESA's Hope for Heroes program provides an opportunity to show appreciation for military men and women as they guarantee freedom here in the USA and around the world. Hope for Heroes Week falls the week of Veteran’s Day in November. Each year, chapters are encouraged to hold a special program or event during the week to support military members, their families or veterans. While many members engage in Hope for Heroes activities throughout the year, during this one special week we all try to do something extra special.
ESA for Literacy
ESA for Literacy combines a number of different projects to help members develop hands-on programs in their communities to create enthusiasm for reading or to simply instill the love of a good book into the lives of children and adults everywhere. The ability to read is a skill that many people take for granted, but the reality is that 25,000 Americans lack even the most basic reading abilities. Members of ESA understand the importance of the ability to read and sharing the gift of reading. There are many projects you can become involved with, whether you are working alone, with a group, or with your entire community. It does not take long to share the gift of reading, but it is a gift that will last a lifetime.
