The goal of Easterseals Crossroads is to be the resource any one of us could need at any point in our lives. As one of over 70 Easterseals affiliates, we help individuals with disabilities achieve milestones in independence from birth through later life. We are there at the beginning with early intervention therapy for babies / toddlers and therapy services for children. We grow with your family with autism services, camp and respite programs. As your family ages, we assist with transition services, employment assistance, veteran programs and community day supports. As your family changes, we provide answers for independence through assistive technology, deaf services, home modification services and driver evaluation/training.
Easterseals Crossroads is the community resource any one of us could need at any point in our lives. For almost 85 years, we have provided outcomes for individuals in our community who depend upon our services – people who do not need our services until they do.
Children like Erionna, a 6-year-old girl who works with our physical therapists and is making progress on sitting, holding her head up, standing and becoming mobile with her gait trainer.
Young adults like Samantha, a 25-year-old young woman who worked with our employment division to get her career going after she had an accident that resulted in a traumatic brain injury. Sam works at the Benjamin Harrison YMCA and she is truly making her way.
People like Scott, an individual who worked with our certified driver rehabilitation specialist / occupational therapist to assist him with vehicle modifications. Scott was involved in an accident when he was 24 years old that resulted in paralysis from the waist down. Scott’s vehicle modifications are helping him in maintaining independence.
We help make positive outcomes for the many people who use our services. We serve
over 8,850 individuals with disabilities or special needs each year. Many of the individuals we serve have no other means of accessing assistance; their needs would go unmet without services from Easterseals Crossroads.
