4th of July at Easter Seals

July hosts one of our very favorite holidays: 4th of July. Not only because it revels in our marvelous nation but because it promotes our very favorite word: INDEPENDENCE. At the end of the day our goal is simple: help people with special needs become independent. For nearly 100 years Easter Seals has worked to ensure that these individuals have a place that is both safe and pushes them excel to their full potential. One way we do this is through our employment services. Nationwide, Easter Seals has been able to assist thousands of people with a variety of special needs train, prepare for, and find a job. Because unemployment among the disability community is twelve times that of the average, we take this issue very seriously and it is constantly on our minds. Hearing of a first pay check or the latest friend someone made at work is as exciting for us as it is for them. We hope to shrink the unemployment rate and expand awareness for the equality of all people in the workplace. Independence is for all people, we are here to make sure that message is not forgotten. For more information please log onto our website and see how you can get involved in the quest for independence.
